Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve the park's tent or RV campsites in advance via the Florida State Parks website. Reservations are available year-round. 
  2. Florida residents can make campsite reservations 11 months in advance, while non-residents can make reservations 10 months in advance.
  3. Reservations tend to fill quickly due to the park's popularity, especially during peak seasons and holidays. Book your campsite as early as possible to ensure availability.

When to go

Bahia Honda State Park is open year-round. The peak season typically falls during the winter months when the weather is mild and ideal for outdoor activities. But if you're craving peace and quiet, consider visiting during the shoulder seasons (spring and fall) when the park is less crowded. If you visit during the summer months, stay aware of hurricane season (June to November) and plan accordingly.

Know before you go

  • Bahia Honda State Park is about 37 miles from Key West on Big Pine Key and is open 365 days a year from 8am until sundown. 
  • It's recommended to arrive early on weekends and holidays because the park may close after reaching maximum capacity in its day-use areas. During these temporary closures, arriving visitors will be asked to return later. 
  • The park offers amenities like restrooms, picnic areas, and a concession stand where you can purchase snacks and drinks, and rent chairs, snorkeling equipment, and kayaks.
  • While there are no admission fees for the park, there are fees for parking, camping, and equipment rentals.
