Lovers Key State Park
About Lovers Key State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
School is back in but that doesn't mean the summer fun is over.
Pack up the family and head out to the park for a great sunset picnic or a weekend on the beach. Go kayaking, stand up paddleboarding or bicycling. Why not all of the above? Walk the beach and find some great shells, or go fishing and catch snook, redfish and trout just off the beach.
There's plenty to do for the whole family including the newly launched Junior Ranger Program. For more information please stop by the Ranger Station.
Have a smart phone or GPS? Try out geocaching! A great way for the whole family to spend time together discovering Lovers Key. For more information visit www.geocaching.com and search under "loverskey".
Be safe and remember the essentials when enjoying the outdoors--sun protection, water, and bug spray! Don't forget to check the weather too, Florida's afternoon thunderstorms are active.
Lovers Key is located at 8700 Estero Blvd., Fort Myers Beach. The park boundaries are Big Carlos Pass and New Pass. We are 10.5 miles west of I-75 on exit 116.
- Volunteer -
Volunteers play a vital role in the daily operations of Lovers Key State Park. Whatever your time allows, you can make a difference. Volunteers can assist in the park by driving the trams, taking park photos, monitoring sea turtles, removing non-native invasive plants, raising park funds, collecting tolls, giving out park information, monitoring water quality, maintaining the park grounds, performing minor repairs, assisting with projects, presenting guided walks and assisting the staff.
If you are a camper looking for a place to stay, the park has six beautiful volunteer camping sites with full hook-ups. You must have a self-contained RV unit and volunteer 32 hours per site. There is a one month minimum stay at these sites and a four month maximum stay. We strive to match your skills and talents with a volunteer opportunity that best suits your interests. The volunteer sites offer a wonderful way to spend some time in paradise while providing a much needed work force that enhances the operations of the park. For more information, contact Volunteer Coordinator, Katie Moses: (239) 463-4588.
