This park is made up of a group of islands in the Middle Keys, with public access to swimming, a playground, picnic tables, grills, and showers on the ocean side of Little Crawl Key. The hardwood hammocks found on these tropical islands support one of the largest populations of thatch palms in the United States. Mangrove swamps, seagrass beds, and wetlands provide vital habitats for tropical wildlife.

Florida state parks are open from 8 a.m. until sundown 365 days a year.

CampingWater/Electric Sitesyes
A 28-site campground, located along the oceanfront, is open from November 1 through May 31 each year. Most sites have a gravel parking area for cars and RVs, and most have an adjoining sand area for pitching a tent. The sites without a sandbox are 10-19, 21, and 26. Tents may be placed on these sites as well, but the gravel is more coarse. Site 1 is ADA accessible. The campground fills quickly in winter, so make your plans early.

RV Camping

All 28 campsites offer water and 15/30/50 amp electric hookups, and a dump station is available within the campground. All sites are reserved through Reserve America.

Swimming is available in designated areas. In general, the water is shallow and the currents and waves gentle.
Canoeing and kayaking are outstanding in Curry Hammock State Park. Human powered boats may be carried to the waterfront and launched from both the day-use area and campground. The shallow waters are usually calm with gentle currents. There are miles of shoreline on both the Atlantic and Bay of Florida sides of the park and a beautiful mangrove creek to explore. There are no facilities for powerboats in the park, and most of the waters within the park are a no combustion zone.
Fishing is allowed within the park. The flats often hold permit and bonefish, and the channel alongside the park has produced sizable sharks, snapper, snook, and more. Florida fishing regulations apply within the park, and spearguns are prohibited at all times.

The picnic area is located on the southeast end of the park and has 4 pavilions, each with a barbecue grill and 4 picnic tables. Please contact the ranger station at (305) 289-2690 for availability and reservations. When not reserved these pavilions are available on a first-come basis. Other picnic tables are spread out along the waterfront. Pavilion 1 is ADA accessible.
Bicycles are welcome on park roads, and the Overseas Heritage Multi-use Trail which passes through the park, providing easy access to and from Marathon. For your safety, remember persons under the age of 16 years are required by state law to wear a properly fitting bike helmet. To preserve the natural areas of the park, bicycles are limited to roadways and are not permitted on footpaths, boardwalks, restroom ramps, or the nature trail.
A 1.5-mile nature trail winds through the hardwood hammock. The tread is uneven and appropriate footware is recommended.
Area Attractions
Inline skating is permitted on the park's roadways, and on the Overseas Heritage Multi-use Trail.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
January 28 Introduction to the Keys by Jack Wendleton
This park was a gem. We had not been to the keys before. While, the campground was full, we did not feel crowded. The campground hosts were all helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable about the amenities and area. The Park Staff was more mixed. One was very helpful, but a second was rude and dismissive.
August 7 Lots of fun, great fishing by Happy Florida Camper
This is one of our favorite campsites. The sites are close to the beach and the fishing was great. The facilities are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Shopping close by, so you can conveniently pick up anything you forgot to pack. I love this park!
January 4 A Very nice park for beachies by Bill
We live in Florida and have a Florida State Park passport book as we camp often. we visited Curry Hammock 2 years ago in April and like all Florida parks is clean as can be. A small and very new facility right next to the beach, it was very warm but if your a beachy person you will enjoy it
