Located just a few miles from the city of Miami, Biscayne is the largest marine park in the National Park System and preserves the diverse marine environment where the Atlantic Ocean meets Biscayne Bay. The park features a variety of plant and animal life both above and below the water's surface, including the longest stretch of mangrove forest remaining on Florida's east coast and part of the only living tropical coral reef system in the continental United States.

A Paradise for Boaters

Even camping at Biscayne requires a boat to get to the designated tent sites. Fortunately, the park offers canoe and kayak rentals year-round, as well as ranger-led boat tours between January and April.
