The main portion of the park, on the Atlantic Ocean side of US 1, features a campground with sea breezes, a picnic area, and a small beach for launching kayaks or wading in the shallows.
A paved portion of the Overseas Heritage Trail parallels US 1 through the park, which stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to Florida Bay. Hidden off the bike path is a nature trail that snakes into the island’s backcountry to showcase a Florida thatch palm hammock – one of the largest in the United States – along the mangrove-lined shores, where flats fishing yields bonefish, permit, and tarpon.
