Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park, Dania Beach
(4.1/5 based on 260 reviews on the web)
Instead of just sunbathing, get active at Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park and choose from a long list of recreational activities like surf fishing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, canoeing, or boating. Visitors curious about Florida's underwater world will love shore diving here. If you are tired of the water, explore one of the park's nature trails instead. Alternatively, walk to the northern end and watch ships sail home through the mangrove channel. Keep in mind there are no restaurants or shops around, so bring snacks and plenty of water. Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Dania Beach Edition.

  • Love this park! I come here quite often to refresh my mind and chill. The relatively long, undeveloped beach provides plenty of room for you. It's guaranteed that you can find a spot for yourself with no other people around even on a busy weekend. However, you can definitely hear those noisy planes taking off and land as the park is very close to the airport. Oh well, nothing's perfect. Port Everglades is also just around the corner (literally) so you can watch some huge cruise and freight ships coming and leaving (kinds tend to love that). Kayaking is also a great option (rental kayaks available) plus I know many people launch their boats from here. Overall, it's a park worth visiting!
  • This lovely park has something for everyone - sun, shade, swimming, snorkeling, lots of barbecue and picnic areas, a marina for launching boats and other motorized watercraft, a restaurant with great food, a concession with kayak rentals and other sundries, and a gorgeous jetty for fishing enthusiasts. The eastern shore of the park is a favorite for nesting sea turtles, and if you're there in the fall you might catch a glimpse of their newborns' first steps! Nature lovers will delight in the native flora and great birdwatching. There are plenty of restrooms and garbage cans, and the Rangers are friendly and helpful.
  • Great spot to kayak. Really serene. Until a plane flies overhead.
  • Everything about this park is great! The little personal beach, food, museum, and scuba boat are all great things to explore. You can also canoe or kayak if that's more your style.
  • Nice big park ! Loved the last lot where you can walk the long pier made of rocks. The beach isn't the cleanest due to a lot of seaweed and some debris. I'd visit again to enjoy some sun and relaxation. I'd say it's worth the visit .
