Peanut Island

Peanut Island is 11 miles north of Lake Worth. The island is an 80-acre tropical park in the Lake Worth Lagoon. The island supports 20 sites for tent camping--each with a tent pad included--and alternate beach camping is available. The facilities provided include restrooms and showers, but there are no stores on the island. People come to visit by way of their own boats or by water shuttle service. Boat docks and a pier enable guests to have greater access to the water. Travelers can go snorkeling, enjoy the swimming beaches or wander the walking path that offers access to each of the natural resources of the island. An observation deck on the lagoon is present for those who do not want to get into the water to view the marine life. A shallow water reef is on display and manatees can be seen from the park.
