A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Ken Troisi

As we proceed into our summer season and say goodbye to our winter visitors from up north, spaces in our campground are becoming available. Check with Reserve America (1-800-326-3521) to make your reservations.

Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoor activities the park has to offer. Remember to use sunscreen and drink plenty of water as the temperatures start to climb. Rent a kayak or paddleboard to check out the sea life in the shallow seagrass beds or explore the nearby sandbar as you enjoy a cooling sea breeze. Take a hike along our 1.5-mile nature trail, try your luck with a fishing pole, or maybe you would prefer to just hang out and relax on the beach. Bring your friend or better yet the whole family for a fun-filled day. Have a picnic in one of our shelters overlooking the beach, grills are available for your use. 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 and paddleboard rentals are available from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., and are a great way to see "…the Real Florida."

Don't forget to check out the February 2014 issue of Making Waves - the newsletter of the Friends of the Islamorada Area State Parks, Inc. Better yet, ask about becoming a member!
