Overview

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.

Because of hurrican Irma damage and roosting eagles every walk is closed. The park ranger allowed us a quick round by car of the grounds without paying. What we could see looked good.

The scenery was incredible. The biggest downfall was the amout of bug bites we got in such a short time.

Went on annual trip numerous times in last 15years. Nice area for canoeing and bringing a boat (launch ramp on premise). Awesome fishing nearby and only 8minutes to Marco island and shopping.

This circular walking trail gives a glimpse of old Florida. There are kayaks available to rent and the day we went, the park ranger gave us a wonderful overview of the area. Although not easy, one couple was managing a wheelchair.
