Bahia Honda State Park is a gorgeous place to visit and stay in the Florida keys. Staff is friendly, camp sights are clean and spacious. Camp facilities are clean and cleaned very thoroughly daily.

There's awesome snorkeling on the marina side, and the water is usually extremely clear and visibility is good (best at slack tide) but unfortunately the Atlantic side gets covered in seaweed continuously. For snorkeling, it's the best spot to go without having to go far away from shore, but still seeing lots of fish and other marine life.
