Overview
More
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.

This is an excellent guided tour canoeing down the canals through the mangroves. The volunteer guides are friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about sharing their expertise. There are four stops along the way to hear interesting narration and to rest. Highly recommended.

Easy 3 hour paddle with experienced guides that love what they are doing. My wife was nervous novice but had a great time. Al skill levels will enjoy. 30.00 per adult is a great deal, and the money stays in Collier Seminole park.

There are two camping areas, one for tents and one for RV's. If you're camping in the back of your SUV like we do, opt for the tent area or you'll be dwarfed by the mammoth RV's! We've never seen such large RV's, and many...More
