 About Curry Hammock State Park

A rainbow peaks through the clouds at Curry Hammock State Park in the Florida Keys.

With summer finally beginning to relinquish its grip on the humidity and temperature, we can truly say fall has begun. Florida Keys Hawk Watch is in full effect and have been observing a record number of ospreys migrating through. 

With some of the mildest winter weather in the country on its way, camping reservations go fast, so secure a spot now. Come visit for the day and take a hike along our 1.5-mile nature trail, paddle through the mangroves, or try your luck with a fishing pole. Ranger-guided programs are available Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Please call the Ranger Station at (305) 289-2690 for more information or tour reservations. Kayak rentals are available from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., and are a great way to see "…the Real Florida.”
