 About Long Key State Park

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


Mark Duncan

Summer is here and a great time for camping or a picnic along the Atlantic Ocean. Plan to explore the waters surrounding the park with a paddling trip or a snorkeling adventure. Canoes and kayaks rentals are available through the Ranger Station from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. daily. If you are snorkeling, remember to display a “Diver-Down” flag for safety. Come stretch your legs with a one-mile walk around the Golden Orb Trail. It’s a perfect chance to explore natural habitats of the Florida Keys.

Fishing opportunities are excellent just off-shore and in the gulf-side waters. All anglers, 16 years of age and older, must possess a valid Florida fishing license. Visit for detailed fishing rules and regulations.

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.

Whatever your Florida Keys adventure, stop by Long Key State Park and enjoy “...the Real Florida."
