“Amazing Camping Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Long Key State Park is so absolutely beautiful. Every camping spot is right on the water. Not a lot of trees but in the late fall, winter and spring you can't beat it. We go camping in Long Key whenever we can. The park is booked up 11 months in advance therefore you have to plan ahead but it is worth it.

“Great camping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Long Key is a beautiful park, where you can sleep right on the beach. Great place for a weekend get away. One of the few parks that has fire rings at the camp site, so you can build your own ground fire and watch the sunset over the water.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Another great state park - we've been impressed at how well kept all the state parks are- some tiny beautiful beaches , great walks although very 'buggy' and friendly helpful staff - some great photo opportunities of driftwood on deserted beaches

“RATS!!! Everywhere at night, otherwise beautiful state park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I find it impossible NO ONE saw the thousands of rats that come out at night. Granted I was in a tent, not a camper. No one is even warned to keep thier food up and away. This is your heads up if you are going to camp. I'm not saying, don't camp here. The state park is beautiful. Everything else about the park is wonderful.

“Camping in front of the turquoise keys sea... Paradise absolute!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

A true gem of the keys!! Camping in front of the ocean, do the fire at night embraced by the subtle sound of the minimal waves of the keys sea, turquoise and blue all around; outstanding sunrise from your campsite... Just peace on earth!! I would live there forever!!
