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.

Took a wonderful 3 hour canoe trip in this mammoth state park. If the natural world is your habitat, you'll be glad for this ride. Not a lot of wildlife, although we got very close to, arguably, the largest Great Blue Heron I've ever seen....More

We took the short walk through the park and rented canoes. Employees at the park were incredibly helpful, quick, and friendly. The canoeing was enjoyable except for the sounds of airboats (which actually sounded like Monster Trucks) off in the distance. That noise really distracted...More

Very high density for a state park. Park design is strange. Many sites with tables and fire rings on the wrong side. Bathrooms were small and not adequate for the number of campers. Dump station was another flawed design. One way arrows, but you need...More
