Curry Hammock State Park
Curry Hammock State Park is the largest uninhabited parcel of land between Key Largo and Big Pine Key. The park protects large areas of mangrove swamp, rockland hammocks and seagrass beds essential to the Florida Keys ecosystem. The shallow, protected waters of Curry Hammock State Park make an ideal place to kayak and paddleboard, with a beautiful mangrove creek and miles of pristine coastline. Bring your own equipment or inquire at the ranger station about rentals. When the wind is blowing, the oceanfront is a popular place to launch windsurfers and kiteboards. A 28-site campground is located along the oceanfront. Reservations are made through Reserve America at 1(800)326-3521 or by visiting their web site. There are great opportunities for birding year-round within the park. Shallow water fishing is available on both the ocean and bay sides of the park. Hikers enjoy a moderately difficult 1.5-mile trail through the bayside hammock of the park. A variety of Ranger-led activities are offered, please call the Ranger Station at (305) 289-2690 for more information.
