The long key state recreational area is a stretch of oceanfront sandy beach on Islamorada. You can watch the waves and enjoy the view.

Great place, great views from the campground. Nice ranger at check-in. The price is right considering it is in the Keys.

Some people love this place. Nice boardwalk. Poor views of the ocean. Clean restrooms. It may be a decent place to camp, but it looked fairly deserted. You might want to pass it by and head further south along the Keys.

Not very busy, but couldn't get into the campground to look around. Would have liked to do more paddleboarding there.
