 About Long Key State Park

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


Mark Duncan

Time to shake off those winter blues and renew yourself with trip to the fabulous Florida Keys.

Come on out and visit Long Key State Park for the day. Fishing, snorkeling, and diving are just a start to what your adventure can include. We have two great hiking trails to explore which provide a close up look at the variety of natural plant and animal communities in the Keys. Bring your own kayak, or rent one from our Ranger Station for a paddle along a natural shoreline to see a variety of wildlife hiding in the mangroves or in the clear shallow waters. Rentals are available from 8am until 3pm daily. If you plan on snorkeling, please remember to be safe and display a “Diver-Down” flag.

If you are looking to stay a little longer than the day, try camping with us. Visit and reserve your campsite today. We have tent and RV campsites available with electricity and water at each site in our main campground.

Want to get more involved? Check out “Friends of the Islamorada Area State Parks” and join today. You can get more park information and event activity in the February 2014  issue of Making Waves - the newsletter of the Friends of the Islamorada Area State Parks, Inc.

Come on out and see what “...the Real Florida” has to offer.
