State Park in Florida Keys Offers Campers Quiet, Unspoiled Beaches

On Bahia Honda Key, there's a lot of positives. Even the hermit crabs are fascinating, provided you stay wary.

Most visitors to the chain of low-lying islands stretched off Florida's southern tip don't stop until they reach Key West.

The two-mile coral island, shaped like a melting violin, is a state park. So Bahia Honda's beaches, easily the best in the rocky Keys and contenders for tops in the state, are protected from the high-rises that consume much of Florida's coastline.

Camp sites in the secluded hardwood hammock on the island's Atlantic coast are for tents exclusively. The park also has a larger RV camping area, and air-conditioned cabins for rent, which sit on stilts around a deep channel where swimming is prohibited.

Camping fees are $26 a night plus tax covers as many as 8 people. Reservations are through or by calling 800-326-3521.
