Best boat ramp ever, great access and parking, quality ramps, docks, restrooms. Easy to find and right on the Crystal River within a short boat ride to the Gulf.

Pretty and secluded. Small beach and boat ramp for shallow draft boats. It wasn't very busy when we visited.

The entrance to this trail is way out on Ft. Island Trail beyond the county's only beach, so it's a real commitment to get there. The trail is quite short, taking you through native vegetation and then out onto a long pier jutting into the...More

Great for a short stroll to see the Gulf of Mexico......there is also a beach next to this....small, but nice. Plenty of parking; but really crowded on the weekends.

This is a great place to spend the morning. There were several species of wood peckers. It's a short walk to the boat ramp and dock where we saw manatees swim by.

This is a nice little trail that connects Fort Island Beach to the pier. Only takes a few minutes to walk through though.
