We had a nice spot with plently of shade. The staff thru-out the park was friendly including the campground host and hostess. The bath houses are clean and well stock (done a daily basis). We will stay here again but not in August - the humidity and bugs were un-bearable. There is pleanty to do with a swim area, boat... More

This is a great park, we were really impressed with the location and facilities. It can get crowded so go early. We rented a boat two days (~$800). Was not impressed at all with the equipment and staff at the rental counter. They are renting boats in one of the most treacherous areas of the Keys and they can't provide... More

We stayed for one night at this campground. We arrived quite late, but the next day we did a tour with the glassbottom boat. Excellent!!! The campsites are good, you are not very close to your neighbours. There is a lot of wildlife, so dont't let the iguanas scare you... When we were there the little creek was quite dry... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. Very spacious camping area. Very clean and well maintained campground. We have stayed at many state parks in several states, few were this nice. We err will be coming back.

If you are into snorkelling or scuba diving it's great. If you just want to relax and watch everyone else do the work it's also great. Plenty of things to do, great gift shop and healthy sandwiches for lunch... This makes a fantastic change from burgers and hot dogs ( although you can get those too if you want them)... More

Enjoyed the snorkel trip! It was a beautiful morning and the Captain Karl and Aaron were both wonderful and made the trip very enjoyful. Got to see the beautiful Christ of the Abyss and the snorkeling time was more than enough on the 2 1/2 hour trip!

I don't understand all the great reviews. This is the only public beach in Key Largo. Admission is paid per person and for a family four it cost us $10. The two beaches that they had were extremely small covered and rocks and seaweed. It was quite difficult to walk in the water. We didn't get there till 530, but... More

Had issues after eleven year old entered water and Captain Wade had great pointers and instruction! He then got back in the water and was a... More

Great place to camp with a family. Sites were nice and staff and volunteers were always helpful and nice. It has full hookups and washer/dryers available. Showers were always clean and there is so much to do in the park itself and its nice being able to walk to everything. We partook in all the park had to offer (snorkel,... More
