  • One of the best places to go in the Keys!! Fantastic people at the snack bar, the staff and people visiting! So many things you can rent. Chairs, snorkels, masks, umbrellas.. you name it. We went twice and it was great to have so many food options at the snake bar. State parks are crushing it in FL!! Also.. grab some of the key like pie they have. Best around.
  • Great landscape. We had a quick stop here when we were returning from Keys to Miami. The turquoise color water was so clear that I ended up dipping in the water, but there were sea weeds in lot of areas which few may not like. There is also a hiking trail that takes you near the railroad bridge. The park is well maintained. The bathrooms were clean and there was also a shower.
