Stayed there Monday-Friday near the end of September and it was beautiful. We stayed in a tent at campsite #24. The weather was great except for a storm Monday night after we arrived, but it passed pretty quick. There were a lot of fire ants, but we were able to buy fire ant killer at the store up the road. Beautiful sunrises. We were able to walk down towards the end of the park and go to the sandbar in the water. Bring water shoes and bug spray. If you can, invest in a ThermaCell for the mosquitoes at night. It worked wonders for us. The Rangers were very nice as well as our neighbors. The bathrooms towards the end of the park were indoor and nice, hot, but it is a FL summer. Great for kayaking and snorkeling, tried fishing but only a few bites. Did see a few jelly fish in the evening one night. Lots of sand fleas on the beach, but if you move your chairs far enough into the water, they don't bother you. Will definitely be going back soon. (I recommend checking out Robbies at IslaMorada. Great dining, great atmosphere and you can feed the tarpons!

If you are a true camper or one who really understands and appreciates the Florida Keys for the paradise it is, then you will love camping at Long Key State Park. Every camper gets his own piece of million dollar Keys real estate. For a short time, this prime oceanfront property if your homestead on the Atlantic. Every site is a few steps from the sea and provides its residents with spectacular views of the ocean. The park has a interesting and scenic trail (Golden Orb Spider Trail) and kayaking available, but its best amenity by far is sitting at your campsite staring off into the blue sea and soaking in the Keys. Whether you are in a million dollar coach or a tent, camping of any kind does not get better than this.

We stopped here by chance while driving through the keys. Although we didn't stay too long, we thoroughly enjoyed our canoe trip around the mangroves. The scenery was surreal, an utterly different landscape to anything else I've seen and completely serene. A total bargain too at only $5 an hour. Will definitely go back next time we go to the keys and plan to spend a bit more time there, exploring all then has to offer.

We stayed at site 25 - excellent site. Site was large enough to comfortably fit our 36' fifth wheel with 4 slides and still have room. The site has quite a bit of shade & buffers between the sites next to us. Being right on the water was amazing, relaxing, breath taking... The water is very shallow, we could walk out 500' before we were in waist deep water. The water was very calm. A nice variety of marine life to see while snorkeling. Plan on wearing some type of water shoes while in the ocean to protect your feet. We loved this State Park & we are returning next July.

Very calm and natural beauty. With the exception of high traffic holidays, it's pretty low key. Newer facilities make for bug free showering. Park Rangers are very engaging and keep a keen eye on rule breakers. Incredibly relaxed week in the FL.Keys.
