It's a nice short place to visit on your drive to Naples or Tampa I would highly recommend this place as park rangers are very friendly and one of the best national parks in US

Hidden gem surrounded by the warm azure bay. Mangrove shaded trails, sandy spots to sit by the water, benches and picnic tables, nooks for small craft boats to rest. Absolutely sublime afternoon.

Great example of our National Park service at work. Relaxing, peaceful location. Small beach to enjoy, benches to take in the view, easy walking paths to explore the coastal shoreline. A really nice way to spend the afternoon.

Interesting. Very small park but beautiful setting on the water & beautiful trees. Nice walking trails of 1/2 mile or 1 mile.
