 About Egmont Key

The lighthouse and keepers house at Egmont Key.

A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Pete Krulder

DUE TO THE SENSITIVE NATURE OF THIS ISLAND, PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON ANY PORTION OF EGMONT KEY.

Welcome to Egmont Key State Park!  During your visit, you are likely to find your own slice of solitude sitting on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico. Although the historic nature of Egmont Key is a main attraction, the beautiful blue green waters will keep you coming back for more. If you dare to venture out snorkeling, keep your eyes open for the beautiful sea life that inhabits the dilapidated structures that have sunk into the sea.  With the temperatures as high as they are, please remember to pack your coolers with plenty of water as there are no facilities to purchase items on the island. Due to the remote nature of the park there are no restroom facilities on the island.

GETTING HERE

Egmont Key is located at the mouth of Tampa Bay, southwest of Fort DeSoto Beach. Access by private boat only.
