Park Information

This beautiful and serene park setting offers 300' of swimming area on the Gulf of Mexico and picnic areas, playgrounds, designated fishing and boating area, large boat ramp and the park is known for its Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail.

This is a great place to bask in the sun, take a swim, cast a line and do some fishing, or launch your boat and set sail for a day on the Gulf.  Keep your eyes open for the dolphins, fish, crabs and sea turtles passing by. Follow the channel out and head south toward Anclote Key Island, which is a State Park located just 3.5 miles south and you can camp overnight right on the island.
