We enjoyed our stay very much. Very spacious camping area. Very clean and well maintained campground. We have stayed at many state parks in several states, few were this nice. We err will be coming back.

If you are into snorkelling or scuba diving it's great. If you just want to relax and watch everyone else do the work it's also great. Plenty of things to do, great gift shop and healthy sandwiches for lunch... This makes a fantastic change from burgers and hot dogs ( although you can get those too if you want them)...

Enjoyed the snorkel trip! It was a beautiful morning and the Captain Karl and Aaron were both wonderful and made the trip very enjoyful. Got to see the beautiful Christ of the Abyss and the snorkeling time was more than enough on the 2 1/2 hour trip!

I don't understand all the great reviews. This is the only public beach in Key Largo. Admission is paid per person and for a family four it cost us $10. The two beaches that they had were extremely small covered and rocks and seaweed. It was quite difficult to walk in the water. We didn't get there till 530, but...

As always this state park is one of our fav. The full rv hookups, clean, grills on each site. The snorkeling, kayaking, diving everything is done well! The upgrades are terrific since we were here 3 yrs ago. If you come to see the park for a day or camp for 2 wks, you'll enjoy it all.

When I was asked if I wanted to buy Dramamine because there were 4 ft seas I should have said I'll be back next trip. Instead I did buy the Dramamine (and didn't actually get sick) however the trip was a dud due to the high seas and overcrowding. I think there were too many people on the boat to...

Using a tent, the ground was rock hard. Use sunscreen absolutely. The water taste terrible (it's drinkable tho). Bring bottled water.
