Easy boat ramp with plenty of space for multiple boats to load and unload. There is a lot of parking, but not always enough on a nice day. The bathrooms are clean, but close at sundown. There are lots of benches to sit and there are always people casting off the bank in to the river. I have stepped on... More

The little park was busy when i got there but I managed to find one of the last parking spots! I saw many people fishing on the boardwalk and a few people canoeing on the river. I was so impressed that I plan to visit the park again and would stay a little longer next time around.

We took our boat to the ramp here for access to the St. John's River and the area around Hontoon Island. The ramps are well built, easy for launching and retrieval, and there are restrooms close by.

Seldom can one go by there and not see someone fishing from the railings along the channel of the river. Using chicken mash for mullet is the most common practice used.

The boardwalk was full of fishers when we went, but park is very quant and great for the locals. Parking lot can get full fast as there are many cars with the boat trailers.

This is a great park to people watch, see the draw bridge in action and take in yhe wildlife. This seems to be a popular fresh water fishing spot with the locals. If you're allergic to tobacco smoke you'll be moving around often there's a lot of it going on so be prepared with your masks. You can launch your... More

We have stopped here many times on our way to the East coast beaches in FL. The park is well kept, nice picnic tables, clean restrooms, and a great view of river.
