“13 hour drive and worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Traveled here from NC for the Virginia Key Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance! Camped on the beach for several days and I must say it was very enjoyable! The attendants were pleasant, the landscape and groundskeeping was great, and the park was beautiful! And I'd like to add, for someone who loves showering, the bath house here was quite comfortable, HOT water and a friendly attendant! There are raccoons on the island that like to come out at night and crocodiles. I never personally encountered one of the two except for from afar. If you are camping, don't leave food out in the tent or you may find a creature or two joining you in the tent. But, the beaches are quiet and the view of the Miami skyline, especially at night is a must-see. Two Thumbs Up! I'll be back!

“Great quiet place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Although part of the park is underconstruction, most of the park is still enjoyable. The trees grow right up near the shore offering plenty of shade.. There are benches and tables located along the beach as well as the little playground area. I had a pleasant experience. There are insects in the foliage so you might want to wear repellent or just stay out of the trees :) it's a very scenic place ,, great for photos.

“Really dirty beach”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

I took three kids to this beach this week and this beach was disgusting. Trash and broken glass everywhere. Sea grass growing close to shore and one of the only good parts is that we saw huge crabs here. There are picnic tables and some tiki hut covers. Come on Miami, clean up your beaches. Cost 6 dollars to enter. Don't recommend.
