Henry Flagler's railroad to Key West turned the remote island of Bahia Honda Key into a tropical destination. Today, the island is home to one of Florida's southernmost state parks, known for beautiful beaches, magnificent sunsets, and excellent snorkeling. Visitors can picnic on the beach and take a swim, or simply relax and enjoy the balmy sea breezes that caress the shores year-round. Anglers can fish from shore or bring a boat and launch at the boat ramp. The park's concession rents kayaks and snorkeling gear and offers boat trips to the reef for snorkeling excursions. Bahia Honda is an excellent place to see wading birds and shorebirds. The nature center can introduce nature lovers to the island's unique plants and animals. Full-facility campsites and vacation cabins are available. Located 12 miles south of Marathon.

Q: Hi, I'm looking for camping for two cars (8-10 people) on the days of May 10 and May 11. Is there vacancy for us? And how much does it cost to stay there? I saw the $36 fee but I didn't understand how it is charged. Thank you. -Isadora Swan

The water is pristine and rental equipment for snorkeling/kayaking is reasonable and readily available. A nice walk through the park brings you to the old railroad bridge where you can look down and see Tarpon, sharks, and other species of fish..

This campground is truly phenomenal and the beaches are just stunning, especially at sunset and at sunrise. If scuba diving, fishing, boating, swimming, sunbathing, or just a lot of R&R is what you are looking for, then this is the place. The Keys are a place just for this! Highly recommend this park!
