Come to the wilderness that is Collier-Seminole State Park.

Grab your camera, gather family and friends, pack the picnic basket and head to Collier-Seminole State Park for a day of adventure where a once in a lifetime photo opportunity awaits you. If you are camping with us during the summer, Collier-Seminole is a great spot for dark-sky night photography. Fantastic images of the stars and the Milky Way are possible during the new moon phase once each month. A little skill in photography will be needed for best results. You will be amazed!

Hiking or biking our picturesque trails? Mornings are best. Better yet, canoe or kayak along the winding Blackwater River through a wondrous mangrove forest to Ten-Thousand Islands and beyond.

No canoe, no kayak, no bike? No problem. We have rentals Saturday and Sunday (summer) from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Take plenty of pictures for sharing for these are the memories that last a lifetime!

Visit us at Collier-Seminole State Park and get the feel for "the Real Florida." 

See you soon!
