Long Key State Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Look out from your tent. Teal-blue waters extend as far as the eye can see. A small beach is the only thing between you and your campsite, nestled in tropical woods. The lovely waters of the Florida Keys are your playground here at Long Key State Park.

This campground is simply too scenic. And the ocean views—from your tent, from your picnic table, while you cook or read a magazine—they are what you imagine as you dream of those warm sunny days and breezy Keys nights. Listen to the waves lap against the shoreline. The three bathhouses are evenly spread throughout the campground. A single dump station with recycling bins serves all campers. A primitive camping area with six sites is located in the old picnic shelters by the Golden Orb Trail. These are located in a mangrove thicket, have little or no breeze and “can be very buggy,” according to one park ranger. Furthermore, you have to tote your gear over a boardwalk to the shelter. But the campsitesare cheap."
