Jonathan Dickinson State Park has long been prized as one of the jewels of Florida. The famous park is a Florida State Park and historic site in Martin County Florida

Located just south of Stuart and north of Hobe Sound, this park teems with wildlife in 13 natural communities, including sand pine scrub, pine flat woods, mangroves, and river swamps. The variety and health of these natural environments at Jonathan Dickinson State Park are what make this place so special. Teeming with wildlife, the park is the perfect place to come for a hike, take photos, kayak and explore what Florida’s true ecosystems are like. 

Running throughout the park is the iconic The Loxahatchee River, Florida's first federally designated Wild and Scenic River.Ranger-guided tours of the 1930s pioneer homestead of Trapper Nelson are available year-round. Visitors can enjoy paved and off-road biking, equestrian, and hiking trails. Boating, canoeing, and kayaking along the river are also great ways to see the park. Anglers can fish along the riverbank or from a boat. The nature and history of the park comes to life through exhibits and displays in the Elsa Kimbell Environmental Education and Research Center. Programs for the kids, or for the whole family, are also offered here. The park also offers two full-facility campgrounds and a youth/group primitive campground.
