I ride my bike there frequently to check out the boats coming and going. Talk to the Anglers cleaning fish and see what the families are pulling in out of the channel. Soaring osprey, pesky pelicans and an eagle now and then. It's fun for a half hour or so of just sitting and observing the water life. Not much... More

Was $8 when we visited. Nice ramp, good parking, but limited spaces. On busy days, get there early! Quick to get to an island for shelling, or out to the gulf for fishing! Clean. Offers free use of life jackets thru a donor program. Just return them when done.

This is a special place any time of day. It is usually not crowded and the benches on the water are comfortable and provide excellent seating and observation of nature at its best. This out of the way place is a real prize!

My husband and I spent the 2nd week of Oct. in Marco Island. Most days we would go fishing at Caxambas. We just loved it. Honestly, not because the fishing was so great, but because the view, the wildlife we saw and most importantly the guys in the bait shop were all great. My husband and I really enjoyed our... More

We checked out this park as we had a waverunner tour booked. Great watching the boats and waverunners going down the ramps to enter the water. Also restrooms available there,

We launched there for a day trip to Cape Romano. Was easy to use and not real busy. We left early. Can be windy on some days. Clean restrooms & nice bait shop.

Great fishing pier. Caught over 20 mangrove snappers in a 3-1/2 hour period, and with "squid" !!! Free entry, there's a picnic table underneath the shade of a tree so you have somewhere to hide if the sun gets too be too much. Also a bait shop / market feet away. I will re-visit next time back.

This is a small park located on the southern tip of the island. There is a boat ramp which is the main attraction of this park. They charge $1 to launch you vessel. There also is an area where you can do some fishing and the day I was here there were several people trying to catch although I didn't... More

We were able to put our boat in the water, as well as refuel, & pull it out with no problems. There is a small ramp fee. It is in a perfect location for the south end of the island. The men working inside were knowledgeable, friendly, & helpful. The park also makes a nice stop off for biking or... More
