This park really isn't much of a park. At least not when you think of the amenities a park should include, like a place for children to run around or even something as simple as grass.
They have a boat ramp for anyone who wishes to use it. It's $8.00 for a motorized vessel and $4.00 for a non-motorized vessel. They also offer yearly permits, however, I didn't pop into the store to find out the price. We don't live in the area and it just wouldn't make any sense to acquire a permit. I checked the website before coming here. The marina store carries the usual supplies such as tackle, frozen/live bait (yummy squid, I'm sure!), snacks, sunblock, etc. They also have a fuel dock, which is convenient.
They have a fairly decent amount of parking, but I'm suspecting that it gets busy on the weekends. We went late in the afternoon during the week, so it wasn't busy at all. Some people were fishing, others were enjoying the view. It was a very nice view.
They have restrooms and a few picnic tables, but that's about it. I wasn't aware that I needed to bring my own chairs so we would have a place to sit other than the hard gravel or the dock. If you decide to give this extremely small "park" a visit, bring chairs. They say that the park is four acres, but most of the space is taken up by the parking lot. All in all, it isn't a bad little spot. Plus, it's free.
I don't really recommend this place for children unless you are taking them fishing or out on a boat/kayak/etc. Most children don't really want to patiently sit and watch for dolphins. Don't get me wrong. If I were alone, I could come here and watch the gulf for hours. I enjoy watching for dolphin, birds or other sea creatures that may decide to present themselves. However, that will have to be on a solo trip, when I can really take my time to enjoy it.
