The park is located on U.S. Highway 1 three miles north of Key Largo at mile marker 102.5. The Florida Park Service first acquired the park property in 1959. This was the nation's first underwater park. It was named for Miami Herald newspaper editor John D. Pennekamp whose efforts contributed to the establishment of Everglades National Park as well as preservation of the area that would become the park named for him.
