The park is a unique place situated less the 40 miles from Key West. As it has been said, it is very hard to get in this park. We have been lucky enough to get in several times. It is our favorite park in the Keys and possibly our favorite park in all of Florida. It is hard to put in to words why we like this place so much. You have to come here to see for yourself. One thing for sure the employees here are top notch. From the park manager to all the rangers. They all make you feel welcome and are very helpful if you have a problem. Especially the petite one with the long blonde hair (didn't want to say her name and get my review removed). My favorite thing to do here is to hike up the trail to the old Bahia Honda bridge. The view from here is breathtaking! Right now half the bridge is blocked off so you can't go all the way to the end. I hope it opens back up before our next visit. The kayaking is also fun here. You often can see all kinds of sea life. I've seen manatees, sea turtles, stingrays, tarpon, sharks and many other fish. The water is so clear it is amazing. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It's become quite difficult to book a site here, particularly if you don't have a fiber optic internet connection. I expect this will be a lot worse in years to come, as we learned that 2 Keys RV parks are closing for the building of a hotel and condo. As usual, the park and camping facilities were fantastic, except for some really brutal no-see'ums that even came through the trailer screens. Nothing seemed to work, even the Park store's secret product. No amount of DEET seemed to help either. Campers should be sure to have potable water and electric extensions when camping here, and many of the utilities are not placed where you would expect. Access into the Park can be quite difficult with only one entry lane. Mid to late morning, and early afternoon are the worse times, and traffic will back up on the highway lanes of folks trying to get in. This makes a run over to the Store on Pine Island very time-consuming when campers have to wait for entering day visitors to get back in. We've been coming here for years and love this wonderful place and it's superb staff. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Recently spent a weekend at Bahia Honda as a getaway with my wife. It was a fabulous environment overlooking the beach. There was quite a bit of sand. It was crowded but very private. Very friendly campers and staff. Bathrooms were not the best maintained. Great beach and snorkeling. They have a beautiful and relaxing nature trail as well. I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend taking there snorkeling tour the guide was very knowledgeable and hilarious. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fabulous location in the lower keys. Hard to get a reservation and easy to understand why. Native plants provide screening between sites. The entire island is the state park so security is a given. Kayaker's paradise, great beaches, dark skies for star gazers. Relish the days you are able to spend here. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Motorhome.

Key Deer refuge less than 10 miles away so drive around Big Pine Key if you can break away from all there is to do here.

The area is amazing. It's the Keys! We took a trip to Key West and it was a very convenient drive.

Be prepared for BUGS! The "no see ems " are insane and will chew you up!.And, the smell was very "fishy". Some days worse than others. We live in Florida, so bugs and smell are nothing new to us. Just fair warning.

This is the first place we've been in with ZERO TV channels. None! And the cell service was pretty poor too....AT&T and T-Mobile. But if you want a place with beautiful views, great relaxation and good fishing.... This is your place! Enjoy! We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here in a 35 ft MH towing a jeep. We were fortunate to have had two nights on the water. Absolutely breathtaking views and the sunsets gorgeous. We had to move to campsite 36 on our third night. No views but shaded and somewhat private. This campground is very difficult to get reservations but would love to return and stay on the water again. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lovely beaches on both ends. Also a nice butterfly trail and a trail to the original old highway 1 trestle bridge which affords great photo opts. Fishing, snorkeling all available at this park.

You are also only an hour drive to Key West.

The only real downside here is the location of the dump station. As mentioned before, it is in the middle of the CG next to the bath house. A lot of people were driving to the bath house and going thru the dump station the wrong way to get there. Also, parked cars made getting into the dump station tight. Our site just had new stone put down and it was large and sharp edged. Walking on it hurt the feet. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Motorhome.

If time permits, the day trip out to Dry Tortugas NP is outstanding. They serve both breakfast and lunch on the high speed ferry.

Absolutely beautiful! We camped in site 15 Buttonwood on the water. That was the best snorkeling spot in the whole park! I would have given it a 10 if they had sewer hookups. Also, the dump station should be located on the road leaving the park, not in the middle of the campground in my opinion. The poor people camped next to it have to put up with the smell and engine noise of those using the facilities. I would not recommend using the campsites near the cabins. Those sites are extremely small and the bugs are horrible. The other campsites on the beach are nice and tucked into the shade which you will need in that heat. I can see why it is so hard to get a site here. We lucked out and booked a week when someone else cancelled. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Roads are very tight pulling a 30' trailer and backing into the sites. Sites are very close together, however, you hardly know that your neighbors are there due to dense vegetation between sites. Water service is at the front of the site and for every other space is on the wrong side of the campsite. Bathrooms showed their age, but were tolerable though the showers could use a good cleaning with bleach to get the old mold discoloration off. Beaches are very small compared to what I expected from the brochures. Of course the main attraction here is the location. It is 37 miles from Key West and all the activities along the way. I definitely recommend the snorkeling trip to Looe Key that you can take directly from the park. The staff at the park were all extremely friendly and helpful as well. If this park were located anywhere else I would probably give it a lower rating, but of course it is all about location in the Keys. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tough to expect more from a state park. Although the sites were gravel, and a bit tight for a 39' RV with 5 slides, we were able to make it with room to spare. Each site is separated by a thick hedge on 3 sides, so you get a pretty private setting. There is a marina / snack shop. Because of the way the park is situated, you can swim/snorkel even if the wind is blowing 20 mph. If too windy, walk over to the other side of the island where it is calm. For the most part the campsites are protected. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved our stay here, love the location, close to Key West. Site 25 was large and has a nice waterfront area with beautiful sunsets. The water connection is located front left side (hose crossed site). The electric is located front right, we needed an extension cord. 50 amp power was good. The bath house was extremely clean and nice. We put Plexiglas panels in our screen door to keep the no-seeums out. Bug spray is a must. It's hard to get reservations but don't give up, it was worth the being denied every morning at 7:59:59 for a month plus to spend a week in paradise!

Paid FL Senior rate which made for a great value in the keys. We had a nice wide and level 50 amp site with water. Sites vary in size quite a bit here and no sewer sites are available. Traffic noise is not as bad as some reviews indicate. It gets pretty quiet late at night and we could hear the ocean. No TV reception, but Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. For great happy hour prices and food specials try Springer's on Big Pine Key. It is the best bet around and they have the NFL package and great people there.

Of the four Florida State parks in the Keys, this is our least favorite, though it does have a nice beach. Waterfront sites are very tough to snag, and even though we had one which had to be reserved well in advance, you are looking at and hearing the Overseas highway bridge. Interior sites near the two big dumpsters, bathrooms, and dump station are smaller and the smell from the dumpster is overpowering when it is hot. Can't figure out why they would put the dump station and especially the dumpster in the middle of the campground. Extremely busy on the weekend, with a lot of day use people. We will stick to the other three parks from now on. We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Motorhome.

Only stayed here one night, but what a beautiful park! Wish I could have stayed longer, but was traveling & had reservation in northern FL. The people were so very nice. I plan to come back again if I can get reservations. I was lucky enough to get a cancellation. This is a must see state park & in the keys!! We camped at Bahia Honda State Park in a Travel Trailer.
