  • Gorgeous area. Thought the park fee was slightly expensive, but it was beautiful there. It was a bit rainy when I went, but still warm and uncrowded due to the weather. Got to see a gorgeous stormy sunset from the southwest of the park. Lighthouse was really cool. It was closed for the day when we went, so didn't get to go up into it, but still fun to walk around and take pics.
  • My husband and I booked Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park for our wedding ceremony (elopement) and it was an amazing experience. We only spent a few hundred dollars to be married on a beautiful and peaceful beach with that scenic lighthouse back drop. We had a morning ceremony and Bill Baggs helped us arrange an off duty ranger to let us in the park before it officially opened to the public. During the ceremony it was just myself, my husband, our officiant and our photographer on the beach. Bill Baggs even let us return the following day to actually make the payment so we didn't have to stress about any of that on our wedding day. The planning vendor we used for this location was Small Miami Weddings, and they were also completely amazing.
