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.

There was a serious infection of fleas and mosquitoes. We had a redneck neighbor that was watching us while we were roasting marshmallows and he was touching himself, clearly not a good experience. Since the pricing of the camping was too low I'm guessing that...More

I've camped here several times since August. there are two distinct areas -- a larger, newer section for bigger RVs and motorized campers (although those in tents can stay there too) and a smaller, older, more secluded and woody area (sites 1-20). Only vehicles, tents...More

We went on this camping trip for 3 nights. With kids ranging from 8-13. It has just reopened after a year closure and renovation. That would be why the bath house is immaculate. It was very busy and the camping sites are fairly close. We...More

Went on a bike ride and was warned about the panthers, snakes and bears but we had a close encounter with a big gator. Did we peddle fast, we did, great place all the same.

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.
