We docked our boat on what looks like a beautiful island. Hiked to the first building and stopped for a picture under a tree. Within seconds, my wife had 30-40 mosquitos on her. We tried to swat them and ran back to our boat and jumped in the water. We got eaten alive in a matter of minutes. Looks like... 更多
The tour with the park ranger was excellent. We also enjoyed exploring the house and yard. The best time to visit is in the cooler months (winter) and the bugs are less. There are specific tour times and you can only explore the wooded areas with a park ranger. This is also a great picnic are.
We visited this park and found it's history and plant life interesting. I don't see this as a place you would go back to time and again, but a part of the Keys' history worth visiting once, especially at the $2.50 admission fee.
The state park ranger did an outstanding job of explaining the history, flora and fauna at this park. Definitely worth the visit. Bring some repellent or be prepared for bites.

Was worth the small fee. don't know how interesting... 更多
This was recommended by a resident. You can take an hour hike through a trail of which there is not much to see other than mangroves, fiddler crabs, and plenty of horse flies!
We were taking the Theater of the Sea four hour tour that included Lignumvitae key. The stop was a little disappointing as we were hoping to tour the entire island, but were told the walkways were not open without a guide, and none was available. We were however able to go into the original settler's house, and get a little... 更多
Not a lot to do but great place for seeing island natural fauna .. the people that take care of it are very possessive of this place lol.. so take it seriously and enjoy the time.. if you want to party go to one of the party places, this is for a different side of keyes life ..
