  • The perfect outdoor water adventure you can get! Very shallow water where you can just explore different paths on your cool bright orange kayaks. After kayaking for 2 hours as I did, it wasn't a doubt...  read more »

  • This place is fantastic there is soo much to do. Whether you're in the mood for kayaking, biking trails , nature trails, camping, and this is probably the best place to do all of this in the immediate area. Kayaking through the mangroves has to be one of the more beautiful Scenic things that you can do here you can actually go ocean kayaking into smaller sandbars and uninhabited islands that make for a great fishing trip with family, kids, significant others, or a fun day out on the water with friends. Best advice I can give you be sure to wear bug repellents as mosquitoes especially out on the biking trails can be very aggressive.
  • I always go on the weekdays but have come on a few Saturday's. It is always nice. They have many water sports, a really nice small beach which www very hard to find my first time. There are a lot of nice trails mostly for walking and biking, but I have been skating here many times. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area. Extremely peaceful and serene
  • It's an amazing park with several levels paths for biking, theres a rental place for kayaks, paddle boards, bikes and more, great for a BBQ with seating and shade if you arrive before they open an make the line in busy days, a bay beach with fine sand and a barrier to protect you while you swim, the scenery is great for all kinds of pictures, and there are other park services for overnight stay.
  • This is one of the best state parks in SoFlo. The bike trails are great for biking and trail runs. The canals are beautiful for kayaking and paddle boarding. If you have your own gear, they have a great rock with hoses to wash off your gear. I love this park. 100% would recommend for a first date or a family outing. Don't forget your bug spray or sunscreen! and take cash for the entrance fee!
  • Honestly if you enjoy the outdoors and just spending quality time with your family and friends, this is the place for you. Besides the nice beach and natural bike/walking trails it offers, this park has a kayak rental booth that can offer a twist to your adventure. The prices are a bit sharp and expensive, but if your up for the experience it can be well worth it. You can also take your own kayak and launch from the same spot if you like. The rivers you can choose aren't much, and for a novice like myself, it's a good thing that way I don't get lost too easily. If your brave enough and have the time you can also kayak your way on to the local sandbar to enjoy some salt water or some booze from one of the local boat/bars that always station on the sandbar. I myself enjoy going to the deeper side and free diving in the cool deep waters. Climbing back in the kayak is easier then it sounds. The beach it offers can seem small as it imitates a small gulf and doesn't offer very deep swimming. But that can be good for the kids. It also has barbecues and picnic tables to set up an all day event. If your worried about too much sun there are cabanas you can reserve PRE visit at a cost to ensure your party will fit comfortably. Definitely a place to check out if your ever in town.
