This is a pretty cool place to visit, especially for fisherman. You can drive your car directly onto the pier which is great to reduce lugging gear and coolers. Not sure about the actual fishing report, but there was a good amount of people enjoying...More

Even if you do not like to fish - and I do not - there are m any picture taking opportunities here. This I enjoy. Uniquely set at the Skyway Bridge this state park is a great family area.

Ok to watch sunsets and sunrises but horrible as a fishing location. You’re charged $1.25 to cross the skyway bridge even if you don’t, and then charged $4 per car and $4per person plus tax to get on the pier. Take your money to Publix...More

This is a 24 hour fishing spot, so I came here to accompany a friend fishing, and we came late at night and stayed all the way until the sunrise which was such a memorable experience. Something about watching the sun rise and being surrounded...More

$4 per car then $4 per person gets you on the old bridge to fish without needing a license. Bait shop was open, but snack bar wasn't. Maybe because it was Match 29th and not busy season. Restrooms were clean. We enjoyed catching some fish...More

I personally have had more luck, with a greater variety of fish on the North, but that is my own preference. If you pay the fee at one it is good for 24 hours and you can use the pass on the north or south side.
