We rented a pontoon from Windsong Rentals and went out to the park. It was breathtaking! The kids had a great time handfishing in the little streams that ran across the beach. Lots of birds to see along with dolphins in the area. Several people were fishing off the beach. Truly a beautiful location.

A boat load of us came out and chose here rather than the packed sandbar just to the north. We had the entire island to ourselves it seemed like. Very peaceful and full of shells and sand dollars.

If you can get a boat ride out to this quiet secluded park you will be rewarded with white beaches and beautiful view all around. Those who wish to fish from shore will be surprised at the abundance and variety of fish in the area. Good docking or if you take your boat to the west side you can bring... More

Anclote Key is basically nothing but a beach with a google of shells. Anclote Key is at the eastern end of the Gulf of Mexico. If you like beaches, what better than "all beach." If you like collecting shells, go crazy. If you're like me and enjoy counting things, this is not the place -- I don't have enough fingers... More

Take your boat to the west side of the island, drop anchor and enjoy. Can head to the beach and set up for a picnic, hanging out, whatever. Go during the week and you may be one of the only boats out there. Does get packed on the weekends during peak season. It is a State Park so there are... More

This is a beautiful place! We lucked out with the perfect weather for camping. It took longer to get there by kayak than I expected, but I'm not an avid kayaker. It took us 2 hours to kayak there & 3 hours to kayak back because it was choppy and we were fighting the wind & tide. I definitely recommend... More

Very nice, quiet place for sitting in the sun, having a picnic, and getting your feet wet. The park is small yet has ample parking, boat launch facilities, covered picnic facilities, and restrooms.
