This park encompasses more than 6,800 acres and stretching more than 15 miles from Fort Pierce to Jensen Beach. It contains the largest, most ecologically intact stretch of freshwater marsh in southeast Florida.
Stop at the Environmental Education Center to begin your exploration and see the status of the over 15 miles of multi-use trails here for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. If you can get here in the spring the savannas are blanketed in colorful wildflowers.
Recommended hiking include the Glass Lizard Trail, the South End Lookout Trail, and Hawks Bluff Nature Loop.

We've made a video of our experience at the Park:
A mosaic of thirteen ecosystems within the park including sand pine scrub, sand dunes, pine flatwoods, mangrove and river swamps, and cypress sloughs exist within the park.
About 20 percent of the park is covered in coastal sand pine scrub, a biological community so rare it is designated “globally imperiled”.
As a result of the variety of ecosystems, this place is bursting with diverse wildlife. There are bobcats, deer, otters, manatees, alligators, a multitude of birds (more than 150 species), and even the occasional black bear that live and thrive in this wilderness.
The Loxahatchee River winds its way through the park, passing under a canopy of centuries-old cypress trees. Named by the Seminole Indians, “Loxahatchee” means “River of Turtles”.
This park offers plenty of hiking, biking, and watersports!

We do not recommend traveling around an RV in Key West. We recommend camping at Boyd’s Key West Campground on Stock Island which is about 2 miles outside of Key West proper but almost 5 miles from Key West staples like Mallory Square and Duval Street.

Because there’s only one road in and out (Angela St) and it’s hidden behind the Naval Air Station Truman Annex, this gem is not as well known to the parades of tourists that visit Key West each year and only visited by people who seek it out.
You can take a self-guided tour or there’s a daily free guided tour at 11am (check this as they are currently not running tours). On the third weekend of each month, local re-enactors run historic demonstrations (check this before you go).
The beaches in Key West are a bit lackluster however the beach at Fort Zach is considered the best! The water is a clear aquamarine blue with lots of shaded area near the beach.
The bottom is quite rocky if you’re going swimming but the advantage to that is there is great snorkeling.

Long Key State Park was once the home of the upscale Long Key Fishing Camp. It was a mecca for the world’s saltwater anglers before it was wiped out by a hurricane in 1935. The state park officially reopened in 1969.
Unfortunately, it was also significantly damaged in 2017 by Hurricane Irma and recovery efforts are still ongoing.
There are two nice hiking trails here. The Golden Orb Trail, named after the Golden Silk Orbweaver spider, is a leisurely
1.5-mile walk and the Layton Trail is a quick 15-minute walk along the bay.
The shallow shorelines here also make for great paddling. If you can, try to get out on the water! Kayaks are available for rent from the Ranger Station. The cost is $17.50 for a single and $21.50 for a double for 2 hours.
Call or check ahead for this State Park as the campgrounds were closed for construction in June 2021.
On Grassy Key, you can spend the day with dolphins and sea lions at the Dolphin Research Center!
