The Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park is a Florida State Park, located in the center of Key Largo in the Florida Keys, on County Road 905, one-quarter mile north of its intersection with the Overseas Highway (US 1).

The park's name honors Dagny Johnson, a local environmentalist activist, and is constructed on land bought up in 1982 after the financial demise of Port Bougainville, a project which would have included 15 hotels and over 2000 condos. The park is an important habitat for the threatened Key Largo Woodrat and the Key Largo Cotton Mouse, which are found only in this part of Key Largo: 90% of these animals' habitat is in the Dagny Johnson Park and the adjacent Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Good Nature walk with my family. Kids were not over excited. As a parent it was great family time with some exercise and no electronics  more »
  • Great place to hike or bicycle on trails. Needs MORE INTERPRETIVE SIGNS to name the trees & shrubs, and to explain the ecosystem. Also, a couple more trash cans would help control the litter...
  • The trail is a mix of natural earth and paved path. There are many informational plaques next to the identified tree itself. There is even a beautiful river running along some rocky cliffs, and if you really hike, there are marshy areas full of fiddler crabs. WARNING: Bring bug spray or be eaten alive.
