Long Key State Park
About Long Key State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
Don’t miss spring in the Florida Keys. As the weather warms, we see migratory birds heading back home. This is also a great time of year for fishing, paddle sports, and walking our trails. Come canoe or kayak our clear, shallow waters for a chance to see a sea turtle or manatee. Or, just come and relax and enjoy the blue Atlantic waters from our campsites or picnic area.
Until May 31st, the park offers interpretive programs on Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday programs are nature walks along our trail. Thursday interpretive programs are our Ranger’s Choice, which may be anything from a shoreline walk, canoe or kayak tour.
Whether you come for our interpretive programs, or to explore the park on your own, spring is a great time of year to enjoy “...the Real Florida” at Long Key State Park.
