All visitors must participate in a ranger-guided tour; visitors aren't allowed to wander around on their own. The tour fee is $1 per person, children under 6 are free. Contact the Long Key State Recreation Area in advance for tour information. Tour times are subject to change.
We enjoyed this place. During a visit with my parents in the Florida keys, we took a ride on our own boat there. It is also accessable by kayak. Unfortunately we had to wait a while for a park ranger guided tour of the trail. I recommend you take a picnic lunch. Because after a brief walk around the headquarters there isn't much to do. It is a lovely and interesting bit of Florida keys history and nature to visit. You'll get the most out of it if you take the tour.
