Overview
More
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.

Worst invasion by aggressive mosquitoes since my last trip to Costa Rican jungles. Nice launching ramp for kayaks or canoes, but you are attacked by biting insects the moment you open your car door to get out.

A great destination. Off the Tamiami Trail heading out of Naples. Well worth the walk to see the royal palms in a natural setting. Need bug spray most of the time. You can drive back to Naples via Goodland and Marco Island.

If you are interested in the history of this area and it's early development, you will want to visit the Collier Seminole State Park. The "Walking Dredge" alone is worth seeing to learn about the engineering marvel that was the creation of the "Tamiami Trail"...More

We went walking on the trails and it was really beautiful. There were signs explaining the local flora, a memorial to Baron Collier, a playground, a picnic area, restrooms, a place for fishing or kayaking/canoeing. Really great park to bring the family to.
