Welcome to Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park. The weather is warming up finally and the birding has been fantastic. Our concessionaire is happy to rent kayaks and canoes to anyone looking to explore the plethora of inlets, canals and ponds. They can be reached at 727-478-3146 or just stop in and see them at the main park entrance. Fishing at Werner-Boyce has been terrific as well as can be seen in this photo of Edwin Kingston III with his Black Drum.
