Indian Key was an unincorporated community in Monroe County, Florida, United States. It was located in the upper Florida
Key. It is currently a ghost town.
Indian Key is located about 3/4 of a mile in a southeasterly direction from the north shore of Lower Matecumbe Key.
Only slightly more than 10 acres in size and separated from the Overseas
Highway by open water, it hardly looks like a place of historic significance of Florida Keys.

Indian Key should be approached from its Southern, Hawk channel side. Shoals envelop the island to the N, and a bank of shallows shelves out from both the eastern and western banks as well.
The visitors'dock is perched off the southerly tip of Indian Key. It is rather small, and most of the space here is given over to a hour boat, which brings visitors to the park from Lower Matecumbe Key. It would be far better for captain and crew of most cruisingsized craft to dinhy in to the dock.

Indian
Key est une communauté non constituée en société dans le comté de Monroe, Floride, États-Unis. Elle était située dans l'île du haut en Floride. C'est actuellement une ville fantôme.
Indian Key est située à environ 3/4 de mile au SE de la côte N de Lower Matecumbe key.
D'une taille d'environ 4047 m² et séparée de l'autoroute qui se trouve au-dessus de la mer par la haute mer, elle a une place significative dans l'histoire des keys de Floride.

Indian Key peut être approché par le côté S de Hawk Channel. Des hauts-fonds entourent l'île au N, et un banc de hauts-fonds bordent la rive orientale et occidentale.
L'appontement des visiteurs est perché au large de la pointe S d'Indian Key. Il est assez petit et la plupart de l'espace est réservé pour une heure au bateau qui amène les visiteurs au parc depuis Lower Matecumbe Key. Il est conseillé aux plaisanciers de venir à l'appontement en annexe.
