Fact Sheet and Information

Booking Fee

A non-refundable booking fee is due in order to secure the location and date of our services. This Booking Fee will be deducted from the total cost listed on the client’s Invoice. The Booking Fee is non-refundable under any circumstance.

To Reserve a Date

The Booking Fee, a signed Contract and a signed Rules and Regulations of the Park is due to Lover’s Key Adventures and Events before any date will be reserved. Once all three items are given to Lover’s Key Adventures and Events, no one else can have that date and location under any circumstance.

Final Payment

Final payment is due to Lover’s Key Adventures and Events 30 days before the event. This is also when the final proposal is due. We understand that list minute things come up, so items can be added to the final proposal but nothing can be taken off at that time.

Alcohol Policy

Alcohol is not permitted on State Park property for daily Park guests during daylight hours; however, permission for alcohol to be consumed at an Event may be granted by the State Park Manager and Lover’s Key Adventures and Events. LKAE can provide a list of approved Liquor Vendors for any type of event.

Rentable Items

Items must be rented through Lover’s Key Adventures and Events for the Event site from the Event Pricing List. Don’t see something on our list? Just ask! No request is too great or too small for our Event Team! Lover’s Key Adventures and Events must have final approval on any items being brought into the State Park to ensure that all park guide lines are followed.


All guests will ride the tram to and from the parking lot and the South Beach/Gazebo area. After 5:00 pm the Tram turns in Private Transportation, reserved for our Client and their guests only. No one is allowed to drive down to the beach via the service road unless given special permission by the state park and Lover’s Key Adventures and Events. All vehicles must be escorted down to the beach via the service road by a member of the Lovers Key Event Staff.

Packaging Fees

All Clients must pick a Wedding Package to begin with. This fee will cover time and expenses of organizing vendors, equipment, labor, coordinating vehicle traffic to and from the beach and assuring that the event meets all the park parameters for approved activities. A Package Fee is charge determined by the size of the event, staff required for set up, take down and oversight as well as electrical requirements and duration of the event. Please take careful consideration when picking a Wedding Package based on what you would like with your Wedding.

Department of Environmental Protection Fee (DEP Fee)

To ensure that Lovers Key State Park stays in its more beautiful form, a DEP fee is attached to all Weddings. This goes straight to the State to help with protecting and preserving our beautiful park.

Lover’s Key Adventures and Events and Lover’s Key State Park are always concerned with keeping the park in its most natural, beautiful state. There for we observe the mandatory Nesting Seasons.

Sea Turtle Nesting Season May 1st to October 31st

This is considered Sea Turtle Nesting Season on any South West Florida Beach. During that period of time, the park observes the “lights out” mandate of 9:00p.m. That means that all activity on the beach (including clean up) must be completed by 9:00 p.m. All events must end by 8:00 p.m. and clean up must begin. Please discuss with our Event Coordinator different options for your events during that time.

Shore Bird Nesting Season March 1st to May 31st

During this period of time, Mid Beach will have sections marked off for Shore Bird Nests. Locations will not be determined until that time. Area will be restricted.
