Long Key State Park

 About Long Key State Park

The shore at Long Key State Park in the Florida Keys.


Mark Duncan

Cooler breezes are starting to flow through the Florida Keys providing great camping weather and wildlife viewing opportunities. Many migratory birds use this area for feeding and resting, giving the park visitor an excellent chance to view our feathered friends along the shoreline and on the park trails.

Picnic along the Atlantic Ocean in our easily accessible day use area and plan for stroll along the Golden Orb Trail or try out a paddling adventure. Kayaks are available for rental from the Ranger Station at the park entrance.

Come on out and enjoy a day or spend a few nights at Long Key State Park and experience another part of "...the Real Florida."
