It was a pleasure to stay for five nights in the deluxe cabin here at the Big Pine Key state park. What a dream place to stay for rv campers, but the cabins make it even nicer. The beach is one of the best in all of the islands and people come here by the carload to enjoy the watersports. Bahia Honda State Park is located at mile marker 37, so you are a bit remote and five miles from The Stores in Big Pine Key. Day trips to Marathon and Key West are must to do during your visit to the area. All of the eighty campsites were full in April when we booked, which is why we reserved the duplex cabin. Bahia Honda has history, beaches, extensive facilities, and boating. We would recommend the Kayaking and Snorkeling. A pleasure is staying at a property with lovely waterfront views.
I am not sure I can call this Campground Gold, since you're really not camping here when you're staying in these beautiful cabins right on the water heading out under the Bahia Honda Bridge. If you get an opportunity to stay here, make sure you rent the kayaks or bring your own. This would be the perfect place to learn how to stand up paddle board by doing a Weekly Rental and practice each day. This little cove is protected so it's pretty much smooth all the time unless there's a ridiculously zany wind outside. Every time you have a beautiful day you could go paddle on your stand up paddle board and look down below at the critters. I would call this an outstanding idea for a vacation down in Florida. These cabins or cottages are actually part of an historic location and most people use rv travel trailers or camp in tents. Tent Camping is a little tough in the Florida Keys, but you could do it here.
