Awesome area to spend the day swimming with the family, boating, or fishing. The beach and the shallow area for boats is awesome. One of the best areas in FL for fishing. What more could you ask for?

Family friendly, plenty of parking, fishing and boat watching are good. There is a small beach that is very protected. Perfect for families with small children. Good restaurants are nearby, s short drive. Be sure to observe the speed limits on the local roads.

I guess because it was so crowded, that means fun! You have to arrive EARLY to get a parking spot. It is an $8.00 entry fee.
