We stopped here on a kayak fishing weekend. The park admittance was minimal and the accomadations were great. Plenty of parking and the grounds were nicely taken care of. We launched from the Kayak launch on the ocean side. There was several yards of grass that we had to shlep thru but once thru that it was beautiful. The water was clearer that I have ever seen it in the keys. We paddled out a mile or so and caught a few fish but nothing to hang on the wall. Great place to stop.

LOVE this place. Not right now. We have been here in years past and had the best experience. A hurricane came thru about a month ago and planted 8 feet of Seagrass on the Atlantic beaches. They are currently disintegrating and down to about 3 feet. That being said, the Atlantic side is unusable and makes the whole park smell. I could not even walk to look without gagging it is so strong. I would highly recommend a visit another season, calling ahead to verify the beach conditions. The amenities here are great for a park: gift shop, small food service with ice cream, very nice bathroom/shower facilities. Just skip it for now.

Spent a day here but not overly thrilled. The history of the park is incredible though. The train bridge was a tremendous site but that's not why we were there. We did enjoy the Gulf side with the kids. The water was clear and warm.

Sanspur beach to north is great for snorkling and seeing a lot of fish, rays, lobster and squid. The lagoon side is great for swimming and relaxing as well. It is my favorite state park.

Beaches on Atlantic side had some sea weed but still good for surf fishing. Beaches on the Bay side were great for the family swim fans and sun soakers. Lots of rest room and wash down facilities. Great fun stop for the whole family.
