Cute little park with ample parking if you are looking to fish or just have a quick picnic and take a few photos. Lots of birds and wildlife in area that often visit park so a great spot for watching wildlife and the boats coming and going. Picnic tables, public boat ramp, and bait shop available.

if you go at the end of the day and watch fisherman cutting there fish and putting their scrapes down the shoot. There are 3 huge Groupers sitting on the bottom eating them. one has to be 300 pounds or more. you can see dolphins swimming around as well

This is the only public boat ramp that we found in Marco Island. The charge is $8/per vessel with engine, therefore our two jet skis cost $16/day. Plenty of parking and the gentlemen working were informative and showed us a map of the area and gave us information on traveling out to keewaydin island.

Great place to see dolphins. One downer is the guys in the bait shop. They never interact with the customers and are not approachable. Last time I visited, one of the guys just stared at me when I walked in and I had to say hello first.

Very nice park with docks for fishing or launching your boat or PWC. Nice little bait and tackle shop at the dock.

This is a hidden gem on the island. You can launch your boat or buy bait to fish with your kids along the bulkhead. Very clean bathrooms.

Just stopped in to await my husband who was biking the Marco Island Bike Trail. Walked around a bit. There are restrooms, a small snack shop and a boat ramp which seemed very popular, judging by the number of pickups with trailers in the lot. I'm guessing that in the winter (high season) you have to get there early to... More

Not sure why they call it a park, its on the waterway from Marco to the Gulf. Not real boat friendly, tried to dock and was told all areas are reserved, not another boat in site.

Located on the far South end of the island where few tourists come, it is a county (no fee entry) park that caters to boaters due to boat ramps. However, it is a great place for views of the bay and for bird watching as well as the occasional Dauphin and manatee sightings. A great place to sit and meditate... More
