Yes, plenty of parking, but be aware there is an entrance fee, although fee is good for all day.
Did you walk to the fort from the cruise port? We are going in May and I was wondering what is the best way to get to the fort/beach from the cruise port. I will have my son and elderly mom with me. Neither will be able to walk it if it's too far. Thanks in advance.

We are here for a month so did not walk from the cruise dock. It is walkable from there but I might suggest in your situation to consider riding on the Trolley tour which does make a stop at the gate of the State Park. In that case you'll get a narrated tour of the Key and a ride most of the way to Zachary Taylor State Park.
Trolley (I think called Old Town Trolley) costs $23 and is worth it if you want to learn a little history along the way.
You can get a nice lunch at the Pavilion at the beach and lots of picnic tables in shade near beach.
Walk from gate to beach area might be 1/2 mile FYI. Taxis are allowed all the way to the beach and would only cost? $15?
I have been to this fantastic park many times and especially enjoy sitting under the pines. One of the reviewers above said that they said to bring a " paddle board and snorkel the clear grass flats"
Where are the clear grass flats at Zach Taylor. I've walked the beach and have yet to see that. Any answers?

The reason is Seagrass beds at Fort Zachary Taylor HSP are found beyond the breakwaters in deeper water 200-400 feet from shore. This community is composed of a mixture of turtle grass (Thalassia testudinum), manatee grass (Syringodium filiforme), and a variety of sponges, invertebrates, macroalgae, and crustaceans.
Seagrass beds are ecologically significant because they are extremely productive, support a great diversity of plants and animals, stabilize sediment on the seafloor, and improve water clarity, which is critical for coral growth. Seagrass beds provide food and shelter for invertebrates and fish on a daily, seasonal, or life cycle basis. Many commercially important species utilize this habitat including snapper, and spiny lobster (Panulirus argus). Seagrass beds form shallow grass flats that provide important feeding grounds for numerous wading birds, manatees and sea turtles. Although damage to seagrass beds throughout the Florida Keys is prevalent due to boat traffic and boat grounding incidents, the seagrass community at Fort Zachary Taylor HSP is deep enough that boat groundings do not appear to be a threat. Perhaps this is why u don't see it per DEP approval dated 06-13-08.
