This place has something for the whole family, and entrance to the park is pretty cheap. Bring a cooler with drinks and an umbrella for shade because it gets hot and there's not a lot of shade options. If you like fishing like my father, they have a long pier and a huge abundance of fish to catch, but bring... More

My husband and I have been to this State Park several times, to fish, sunbathe and hangout with family. Our most recent visit was our first camping experience. We arrived on Tuesday afternoon with our camper for our one night reservation. Check in was a breeze, several folks arrived right after us. Our spot # 6 had nice views of... More

Awesome area to spend the day swimming with the family, boating, or fishing. The beach and the shallow area for boats is awesome. One of the best areas in FL for fishing. What more could you ask for?

You can check out their web page for details on the hours of operation and entry fees which are very reasonable. A very long fishing pier that extends into the ocean, plenty of sandy beaches for the sunbathers, a shallow lagoon located on the north west side of the inlet (ideal for the little ones), boat ramps and space for...

Family friendly, plenty of parking, fishing and boat watching are good. There is a small beach that is very protected. Perfect for families with small children. Good restaurants are nearby, s short drive. Be sure to observe the speed limits on the local roads.

bring your floatie and kids, tidal pool is huge and shallow enough to be able to watch the kids. I love to bring my floatie and relax. Great cafeteria on Ocean side. Shady pic nic spots and huge fishing pier. spend the day.

I guess because it was so crowded, that means fun! You have to arrive EARLY to get a parking spot. It is an $8.00 entry fee.

The Sebastian inlet is a man-made inlet that is very calm and perfect for young children because the water is calm and there are very small waves if any. The walk to the beach from your car is very short. I have swam besides manatees here at the Sebastian Inlet. I can't say enough about how calm and safe the... More
