Located within five miles north of Jupiter in Martin County is the Jonathan Dickinson State Park. The Florida State Park sits between Tequesta and Hobe Sound. The state park is named after a Quaker merchant named Jonathan Dickinson who wreaked his boat off the coast in 1696.

During the second World War, the area served as an Army base and home to Camp Murphy. The barracks are still visible throughout the park today. Following the war, the land was transferred back to the state in 1947 to be used as a state park.  The Jonathan Dickinson State Park officially opened to the public in 1950.

Today, the park is home to a variety of natural habitats, river swamps, wildlife, hiking and biking trails, mangroves, guided tours of Trapper Nelson’s 1930s pioneer homestead, 16 natural communities, water activities, observations areas, and much more. The park is filled with many recreational activities and sits on 12,000 acres of land.

 When visiting the park, kayak rentals, paddleboards, motorboats, bikes, canoes, and lockers are available to use and rent during your time. Jonathan Dickinson State Park has two fully working campgrounds and campground sites scattered throughout the park to have your own camping adventure.

The park is open daily from 8 am to sundown, 365 days a year. Jonathan Dickinson State is located at 16450 SE Federal Highway in Hobe Sound.
