Egmont Key State Park is located on Egmont Key, at the mouth of the Tampa Bay, and can only be reached by boat or ferry. Egmont Key has a unique natural and cultural history, including a lighthouse that has stood since 1858. During the 19th century, the island served as a camp for captured Seminoles, later occupied by the Union Navy. After touring the historic sites and trails, visitors can enjoy swimming, fishing, wildlife viewing and picnicking. Photo courtesy of Visit St. Pete/Clearwater.
