  • This was very interesting to see how the woods, marsh, land, river and seaway all interconnect. The drive was lovely, also would have been beautiful on a bike.  more »

  • $4 entrance fee. Very scenic and nice. Would recommend going when they first open or on weekdays because a bunch of people with kids come after 10-11. We enjoyed hiking and will definitely come back to kayak. I took this scenic pic for y'all but this lady kept getting in my way.
  • We come here regularly to hike and enjoy the outdoors but this May (2017) we held our wedding ceremony here. It was perfect and simplistic. We didn't want our wedding at any of the facilities so we only had to pay a permit fee to hold our ceremony on site. The staff was extremely easy to work with to get this permit completed. We showed up the day of our wedding and held it down by the labyrinth maze and the site was beautiful. Perfect combination of woodsy with a water view of the pond.
  • Beautiful, lots to do. $4 to park. Additional for activities. Hike for free. 1 fossil per hiker
  • $6 for park entry. Once you've paid the entry fee, it allows you to fish off the pier with no license required. They also have a boat launch.
  • Great trails. License free fishing at the croacker landing pier. Fossil beach is fun. The park is clean and overall well maintained.
