Egmont Key National Wildlife Refuge and State Park is an island opened to the public but with very limited visitor facilities. There are no existing restrooms due to the challenges associated with the island’s off-shore location. Some of the facilities include year-round opened trails. Egmont Key benefits from the daily presence of state park employees who roam the island and are willing to assist visitors on a day to day basis. There are several beaches that are well marked and designated as year-round bird sanctuaries and are off-limits (closed) to any public entry. There is no drinking water available on the island, so please be sure to bring plenty of water. Other recommended items are: insect repellent, sunscreen, hat and closed shoes when hiking inland trails.
