Staying in Rotonda we stopped at Stump Pass due to reviews on TA. You need to be there before 9:00 am at the LATEST to be able to get a parking spot. It will cost $3.00. It's a 1.3 mile walk on the trails to the end of the key. Some posts claimed nice trails with some soft sand spots.... More

We stopped by Stump Pass to check out shelling and shark teeth. It was pretty crowded when we got there and we got one of the last two parking spaces left. It was a short walk over the dunes to the beach. The wind was up and the waves a little rough. We quickly found some small shark teeth and... More

Really great spot. Bay on one side, beach on the other. very clean, nice people, the ranger is friendly. Just be sure to getting to the parking lot early, it fills up by 9 and you'll have to wait for a spot to open up.

What a great beach. Lots of beautiful shells and a wonderful location. You can snorkel on both sides and the sand is perfect for castles. The water is not very deep for the first 100 feet. And there is a lot of fun wildlife to see. Only warning, there are fire ants up in the brush, so be careful. But... More

The views of the gulf, being able to be in the water and on the sand. Looking for dolphins, walking between greenery and shade. I came to an area where there were tiny inlets so a kayak could be launched. Walking around old tree stumps and eventually to the confluence of Lemon Bay and the Gulf. Pure and clean water... More

$3.00 donation is a steal. Parking limited, but is everywhere in Englewood. Early parkers include a lot of fishermen, who left about the time we wanted to get on beach.

Nice walk from the entrance to where Lemon Bay enters the gulf. Dolphins everywhere as were the sharks teeth on the beach. We saw the park from the water as well. Time for a visit.

We used our annual FL state park pass; but, we had 2 wait approx. 30 minutes 4 a parking place. Very clean park and clean restrooms. 2 outdoor showers. Nice, wide 1.3 mile sand trail. People in boats and kayaks had pulled up 2 the park's perimeter and were cooking out in grills and having a great time. The beach... More

This park is a great place to go to relax and just enjoy the beauty of the beach and the area. Water is gorgeous and the pathways along the shore are nice to just take a walk thru.
