About Lake Manatee State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
Summer time is a great time to take the family fishing. We have a fishing dock, boat ramp and canoes to rent. Remember there is a 20 hp motor limit. Wildlife viewing is best done early in the morning or late afternoon once it has cooled.
Take exit 220 off of I-75. Lake Manatee State Park is located 9 miles east of I-75 on State Road 64 in Bradenton, Florida.
