Considered America’s first undersea park, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo is a popular destination for visitors who enjoy life on the water and below. The park is approximately 70 nautical square miles and offers activities from nature walks and kayaking to glass bottom boat tours and scuba diving.
We were lucky to get a last minute campground reservation in the middle of February thanks to a cancellation that popped up on Reserve America. If you are planning to winter in Florida, try to book your campsite as soon as possible or take a chance like we did.
The drive from Homestead, Florida to Key Largo was beautiful, even during a thunderstorm. As we approached John Pennekamp State Park, there were several large signs along US-1 with clear directions to the park which makes it easy to find. The drive to the park ranger’s office was one of the most beautiful park entrances we’ve seen. The winding road is surrounded by tall lush trees.
