The park has a lot to offer. There is a boat launch there as well for those who want to access the river. Manatee often bathe there and you can get up close to them. A good place to take the family.

This is one of our favorite spots to launch our kayaks. Great place to watch manatee. (Please don't touch!) Good fishing, always beautiful photography trip.

The GPS got me lost twice. When we did end up finding it we were glad we persisted. The ocean was amazing. The tide was too high to swim but there was plenty of crabs and shells.

You can hike, launch you boat or kayak, or if you’re lucky catch a view of manatees , dolphins, otters, rays, etc from the overpass. Sometimes we’ve seen them and other times we’ve seen nothing at all. The beach is across the street too.

We came to see manatees and they were there. Our visit was only about 30 minutes because it was so hot, but we saw many.

I love Manatees and the last time I was in Vero was disappointed that I didn't see any. We stopped at Round Island two times while on Vacation and both times we were able to see the manatees. Made my day!

No, sorry. There are only toilet facilities there. Everyone that uses a kayak there has brought them on a trailer.

I would rather swim on Ocean side to avoid gators. Ocean side is across street.
