Renowned for being the country’s first undersea park, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park encompasses an impressive 70 nautical square miles. While many visitors view the park’s colorful coral reefs and teeming marine life on a glass-bottom boat tour, 

visitors can also enjoy walking on short trails through tropical hammocks, picnicking or swimming at the beach. The visitor center features several large saltwater aquariums filled with sea creatures, and nature videos are shown in its theater. Full-facility and youth/group campsites are available.

Bahia Honda is the holy grail of Keys Camping.  There is no other campground like it on this planet.  Although it reserves months in advance, YOU CAN find camp sites from reschedulings and cancellations by calling them!  Reach out to us for help in navigating the phone list, reservation site and alerts.  You may have to stay one night on a Tuesday and another the Thursday after but you'll be glad you did!  Plenty of Bahia Honda info online, this is just our two cents.
