This is a quiet park with a large dock for fishing and just watching the fishermen come in. The Pelicans are everywhere sunning and watching the fishermen come in and hoping for some fish scraps.

Convenient location on the South end of the island. Easy to walk or drive to. Very quiet location for watching boats come and go, Dolphins swim, and birds hang out.

i have used this spot to buy live shrimp bait several times. A few folks can be found fishing from the wall. The parking lot was developed for trailer parking for those launching their boats. Some open water sights and expensive houses across the water are all that's there.

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.
