The entrance of the park is stunning as you ride through thick woods with a roadway literally cut through. Rangers are very friendly and welcoming as you register. Facilities are very good and the campground is pretty small for a very intimate feeling. Amenities include two beaches and a marina. Diving and a glass bottom boat are available at the... More

Yesterday we went to visit the park. The gate attendant was very nice. It was $9 to enter for us both but they provide you a receipt that allows you to leave and come back throughout the day. We went snorkeling for the 10:30am trip aboard the Sea Garden. The staff on board was very nice and gave us great... More

Very nice state park. A lot to do - snorkeling, diving, nature trails and you have to take the glass bottom boat tour! It's about 2.5 hours, 7 miles out. Wonderful crew, very clean. If you get seasick take the crew's advice! Saw sea turtles, sharks and tons of fish.

This campground is really quite. The sites are very narrow and close together so privacy is lost. But it is well maintained and very clean. I have not visited the rest rooms so I can comment there. The concession stand has a lol it of everything so no worries there.

Been to this state park a number of times. Snorkeling was great. Bring your own equipment or rent. You can paddle board. Kayak. Get a ride on a boat. Clean rest rooms. A number of different beaches. Make sure to have water shoes. You need them on most beaches in the keys. Was so disappointed seeing some of the trash... More

We thought we were prepared for tenting. Brought 2 fans for bugs and a slight breeze at night. It was very hot but fans worked. As long as fans were on us as we sat around it was ok. But when the fans were off the no see ums were overwhelming. If you have any intolerance use lots of bug... More

The park is very quiet, which was nice. There are a few nature trails to wander around on. The beaches are typical Keys quality- go elsewhere if you want pristine sand. The water is pretty clear though. There is a dive shop on site. =) We saw an iguana lazying around the small store. Staff seemed nice enough. beware of... More

The weather was nice and the glass bottom Boat tour was definitely fun. The ladies and gentlemen doing the tour were top notch. Affordable prices and availability was walk in. Would love to snorkel the coral reefs there.

My daughter and I went for the first time today. We were in search of snorkeling areas. We enjoyed both beaches, Far beach and Cannon beach. We saw loads of fish, hermit crabs, a huge tarpon, nurse shark, and red jellyfish. There are iguanas running around the shore areas. We didn't take a snorkeling trip because we only had time...

We reserved a snorkeling trip for 5-- my husband and I, our 9 yr old son and 17 yr old daughter and 14 yr old nephew. We arrived an hour or so early and were advised of rough conditions at sea and given the option to change things up, we opted to stick with it -- We are from KY... More
