Kayaking, paddle boating, bike trails, hiking trails, cove swimming, fishing, cabins to stay over night.... The list goes on!! We decided to take our boys kayaking through the mangroves and out to the beach... More

I love to come here for biking and a swim after, maybe for a light yoga stretching at the park. There are a lot of things to do in here, rent a bike or kayak , just to name a few.

This place is pretty great, They have mountain bikes for trail biking (the trails are not bad at all), kayaks, canoes, all of these for rent to your convenience. It has a nice little store with pretty much anything you may need for outdoor activities besides for snacks and beverages. There also a little "beach" in the very back to... More

We went on a very pleasant hour and a half kayak excursion with our two young adult (18 and 20-year-old) children. Mangroves and birds were really interesting to see. However, the garbage is extremely off-putting. Styrofoam containers, plastic bags, beer cans abound in both the parking areas and mangrove forest too. It's so disheartening to see how little respect people... More

This place is gorgeous! It's a great option to visit with your partner, friends or family! I went kayaking with friends and we were thrilled. The tandem kayak was $ 36 for 1 1/2 HR. The place has a couple of miles of great biking trails too. I'm planning to come back to go biking!
