Gasparilla Island State Park
Welcome to Gasparilla Island State Park
Separated from the mainland by Charlotte Harbor and Pine Island Sound, this island is part of a chain of Gulf Coast barrier islands.
The centerpiece of Gasparilla is the restored Port Boca Grande Lighthouse built in 1890.
Swimming, snorkeling, fishing and nature study are popular activities that can be accessed at any of our five parking lots. Shelling is particularly good in the winter months along the gulf.
Two picnic areas (at the Sandspur and the Boca Grande Lighthouse parking lots) offer pavilions for shade and scenic views of the surrounding water.
The Port Boca Grande Lighthouse houses a museum and is open to the public. Visit our friends group for more information.
The park is located on the south end of Gasparilla Island on the Boca Grande Causeway (private toll) at County Road 775 and Placida.
