Key Largo offers two beautiful state parks:

John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, America’s first underseas park which is a a national park as well as a national marine sanctuary.

Features:

  • John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is one of the top tourist attractions in the Florida Keys.
  • 74 acres of land in the southwest part of Largo Sound
  • You can find the Coral Reef Theater, a giant reconstruction of a living coral reef in a floor-to-ceiling circular aquarium
  • There are snorkeling and diving concessions. You can rent equipment and take scuba lessons from certified instructors that can lead to a diver’s certification.
  • There is an authentic reconstruction of a Spanish shipwreck about 100 feet offshore of Cannon beach.
  • Of course, there are the world famous glass-bottomed boats that can take you out over the reefs, without getting in the water.
  • Pennekamp has over 2 miles of mangrove wilderness – perfect for canoeing and kayaking.
  • The park also offers Camping sites, complete with waste collection and electricity for an extra fee. Florida State Parks can be crowded during the peak months, so half of the sites are usually reserved for up to 60 days in advance. The other half are left open for those who take their chances on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a two week maximum stay limit with campsites. There are bathhouses that are well maintained. Campers also get the bonus of 24-hour access to the beaches and other areas of the park.
