The public water access point located on Collier Boulevard just north of the Marco Island bridge is one of the most popular in Collier County. The access has ample boating parking, but does tend to become crowded during season (Jan - April). Parks & Recreation recommends arriving early during season. The park does not sell fuel, but is one of the most popular boat launch access points because of its easy access to Marco Island and the Snook Inn restaurant, which boaters love to frequent.
