If you miss this excellent time of year to come explore the trails and river at Collier-Seminole State Park you are passing up an ideal opportunitiy to see wildlife and enjoy the quiet and solitude of the Everglades and mangrove forests of SW Florida.  We offer 3 hiking trails of varying difficulty and length and gulf access on the Blackwater River. Come rent a canoe for a couple hours or for the day from the park ranger station.  If you are looking for adventure come visit our new park concession, Collier-Seminole Nature Tours, who offer kayak fishing and kayak rentals, they also provide guided kayak fishing excursions.  Also they feature paddleboarding on the river and will offer brief instruction upon rental.  Their most unique offering is a guided pole boat tour that you can enjoy while letting them do all the work.  Whatever your preference is you should come explore what we have to offer and see the "Real Florida" the way it should be seen, up close and personal.  See you soon.
