Recently visited Ft. Pierce Inlet State Park with my dog. Did not get the opportunity to see the beach area or trails as dogs are restricted to the picnic areas only. The park was busy with surfers going to the beach. I sat alongside the inlet and watched the boats and folks fishing. Drove around the park and there are... More

Growing up here, snorkeling has been part of my life and this beach (known to locals as "pay beach") has been the place in Ft. Pierce to go for great snorkeling along the rocks. The water on calm days is clear, the fish ate abundant. I even saw a manatee (juvenile with mother) in August. Ample parking, large restrooms. Only... More

One of the great views is from the beaches as they overlook the water of the inlet. You have all the water activities, fishing, swimming, boating. Plus there is wildlife and birds; trails to walk, sit, picnic tables, beach, facilities, showers, bathroom, parking, and restaurants in the area. Entrance $6.

We stopped here for a picnic lunch after visiting the Navy Seal Museum down the street. The entrance fee is $6, which we thought was a little steep. The park was clean and not crowded for a weekday. There were plenty of picnic tables, some covered. The kids enjoyed the small playground. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked. Nothing... More

Three generations enjoyed our trip to the inlet, with lots of things to do for all ages. Friendly fishing, large beach, ample picnic areas, unique walk by the inlet, and finally, a cool playground.

I had a dance performance here and it was absolutely a fabulous place. There is almost always a breeze, it wasn't crowded and the beach was fun to walk on.

I am so proud of the fact that Florida residents boast this true gem in the heart of Fort Pierce. Though smaller than some of Florida's other state parks, you can't beat the view this park has, situated at the mouth of the Fort Pierce Inlet, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The park has a beach with gorgeous views, and it... More

This State Park is a wonderful place to enjoy the beach. Sand is smooth and white, and beach is kept very clean. Beautiful sunrises for those who get up early.
