  • Very nice, quiet place for sitting in the sun, having a picnic, and getting your feet wet. The park is small yet has ample parking, boat launch facilities, covered picnic facilities, and restrooms. 
  • Enjoyed my was a beautiful area. Was a great day for a walk. I just moved to Florida and have been making road trips to new areas when possible 
  • This is a nice small park that is never crowded. The beach is nice and there are plenty of places to hike. 
  • Anclote Key is an island that is only accessible by boat. There's miles of beautiful beach for shelling or just hanging out with friends. There's a lighthouse that you can walk to with several informative history and nature displays along the boardwalk/path. Great place for a day excursion.
  • Great park to swim and motor boat. It's on the inlet side of the power plant so the manatees then to go to the other side or up river to the springs. Parking can be limited at times. Small boats(kayaks) can be launched but it has major traffic so not for the beginners.
  • Arrived on the island as a part of a 2 hour tour. We spent about 45 minutes on the island and it is such a beautiful place. My daughter had a blast shelling we found very unique shells. It was not crowded at all and it was clean. I hope to get back out there again.
  • We love parking the boat on the leeward side of the sandbar and in a just a few steps you are on a beautiful white sand beach. There Are an amazing variety of bird's to watch. Go on the weekend if you like to people watch. My preference is to go on a weekday and have quite pricey, you can be king of your own little slice of paradise.
  • $5 BOAT RAMP. lots of parking. River has a pretty good current which makes docking fun at times. Steep ramp, so if you have a big boat better have 4 wheel drive.
