Park Activities

Boat Ramp
There are two boat ramps that visitors can use to access the Apalachicola Bay. The first ramp is located next to the park’s youth camp and the other is 2 ½ miles from the parks entrance. Both can accommodate boats not much larger than 24 feet in length with a shallow draft.

Canoeing and kayaking are favorite activities around the park. Both can be rented on the Island, call the park for more information. Small offshore boats are used around the island for fishing. Keep in mind that the bay is very shallow.
