We were visiting the area and just happened to stop at this park. It was so pretty and lots to see. There were plenty of parking and lots of benches to sit and relax. The restrooms were very clean too.

Boat ramp, picnic tables, benches to enjoy the view, ship's store and ever present bird life - ospreys, pelicans and an occasional eagle! There's always something to view at this park.

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.
