For Hiking...Go to Bayside Area

We were 'day users' and wanted to hike only but the gate attendant did not tell us that the best trail is on the Bayside part of the park and does not require a park admission... read more

Very nice location, would think you are on an isolated island. Two very nice walks, one a boardwalk.

This was a rather quick stop for us one afternoon when we wanted to get out and walk, and have some quiet time. The entrance fee of $3/per person was reasonable. We spent about 2.5 hours there one afternoon. The Golden Orb trail was very nice (about 45 minute walk) to see various vegetation and be in a natural setting.... More

We visited for the day. Enjoyed the nature trail, although we didn't get to see any wildlife. The camping looks good, but I imagine the road noise would be unpleasant. It was a pleasant way to spend an hour or two, but wouldn't go out of my way for it.

We were 'day users' and wanted to hike only but the gate attendant did not tell us that the best trail is on the Bayside part of the park and does not require a park admission. Oh well, it's a good cause and we didn't mind paying. Good trail markers and signage. Mostly shaded. Uneven trail with trip hazards- wear... More

We camped out in the small campground one night on our way to Key West. The campsites are well laid out and come with fire pit, picnic table, water and electricity. The bathrooms/showers are clean but well-worn. The fact you are right on the Atlantic with no bugs due to the sea breeze is pretty great. The park is small,... More

Hubby n I have been coming here for the last five years all sites are on the beach and oceanviews and sunsets are beautiful! The beach itself is not the greatest but you have plenty of room for your beach chair with plenty of sun and no bugs. You will appreciate that at night when you look at the stars.... More

Been here 5 days and love/hate this park. Love: beauty. Hate: rats that come out at sunset Lots of them. I noticed that dumpsters don't tightly close. No communal sink to wash dishes. Advised by a worker to wash dishes at campsite. I'm toting bucket of dirty dishwater to dump in toilets because I don't want to toss any food... More

Love it, right on the water. But being in a tent u can hear the traffic and kept us awake. Now if you were in a camper it might now be bad.

My husband, tween kids, and I rented two double kayaks at the price of $21 or so dollars an hour. The water was pretty calm and temps were 82. We had a blast. Kayaked out to left of rental and went through a few mangroves that weren't too overgrown. Further down the shoreline the mangroves were too overgrown to kayak... More

A very nice park and very cool walks to see the vegetation from the area. hard to top where we are from (oregon), so compared to some that we have, it was OK. For others it might be spectacular.
