Beautifully kept with clean facilities, a restaurant that will surprise you and ample parking. A fun filled day can be had by all... More

We were at the RV campground area early Spring of 2016 (April). The weather was just beginning to get oppressive for us. We camped for two nights. We used the full day between the two nights to ride the "bike trail" (a concrete sidewalk on the inland/river/west side of the highway) south from the RV Campground to the area of... More

The scenery makes the trip worth it. The camping sites are small though, and privacy is going to come to those in RVs. With the beach, fishing, dining... More

We had a cookout at the South side of the inlet park. The tables and hibachi were clean. The restroom very nice and the area beautiful. Well worth the $8/car The beach is incredible and the inlet is a wonder of the world

For the last 5 years, my family and friends get together every other sunday to spish splash in the Florida sun. We go to the inlet (bathtub beach)so the kids can play all day without a worry in the world. I bring a cooler of food and a grill, and park it for the day! Everyone's happy!

We went for a nice walk on the pier and watched the fishermen reel in their catches. Lots of pelicans diivng for food and the water was an aqua colored and clear near the jettys. You can rent canoes and kayaks at the marina. Wetook a nice walk on a nature trail at the marina.
