Came here accidently thinking it was the Curry Hammock State Park but glad we did. A lot of history here and a pleasant walk. Museum educational. Water view scenic with a lot of animal sitings.

This natural area is an oasis amid the development of the Keys. The museum and exhibits tell an interesting story of the first landowners from the Bahamas and how hard they worked. The historic house they built takes you back in time. Also, beautiful views...More

If you are supportive of local preservation efforts, then this is for you. To be able to carry on this not-for-profit for so long is a great testament to the locals who treasured this preserve. To think about the original inhabitants in their natural habitat,...More

Like many of the other reviews I agree this place is great to walk along the trails and see the mangroves. There are some attractions like the bird recovery center and a few historic structures. I am sure the tours would be good but they...More
