This 7,271 acre state park lies partly within the great mangrove swamp of southern Florida, one of the largest mangrove swamps in the world. A wide variety of wildlife, including several imperiled species, inhabits this unusual blend of temperate and tropical native plant communities. Visitors can experience this park's remarkable wilderness on several trails. The Blackwater River originates in the park and meanders several miles through the mangroves to Blackwater Bay and the Ten Thousand Islands. The Friends of Collier-Seminole State Park offers popular daily 3-hour Guided Canoe Trip (9:30 AM - 12:30 PM) down the Blackwater River. No paddling experience required. All Canoes have padded seats and backrest! Please call the ranger station for trip price & reservations. The park has canoe rentals along with a boat ramp that provides access to the Blackwater River. Other trails offer opportunities for bicycling, hiking and nature observation. Campground sites have electricity, water, a grill and a picnic table. The restrooms have hot showers and one has a laundry facility. The park is open from 8:00 a.M. Until sunset, 365 days a year.

This circular walking trail gives a glimpse of old Florida. There are kayaks available to rent and the day we went, the park ranger gave us a wonderful overview of the area. Although not easy, one couple was managing a wheelchair.

The park has interesting historical and environmental features. One can hike a variety of trails, and launch a canoe or kayak for water sports

Good place to go kayaking or canoeing. There's a short walking trail, picnic area, camping area, and scheduled activities. A bargain with entrance to the park at only $5 per car.

We visited the park on a Sunday afternoon, and it was very quiet that day. There is a small concession stand that rents bicycles and has cold drinks. There are also canoes available at another location in the park. We just stayed for the afternoon,...More

Sorry Florida State Park System but this place is a travel ghetto! The campsites are so close to each other that there is absolutely NO privacy and certainly no place to revel in nature or spend time at camp. Florida does such a nice job...More

We had spent two wonderful days in the Everglades and wanted to extend our experience in this State Park. We were very disappointed by the short walk, with little view. Wildlife was absent except mosquitoes which are immune to repellents.
