Freshwater fishing on the north side of Natural Bridge can be quite good at times. Bream, crappie, Florida black bass, catfish and the occasional striper can be caught. All FWC fishing regulations are enforced.
- Stop at the Iron Ranger in the restroom parking lot to pay the entrance fee. Tear off and display the stub on your dash.
- All fishing within the park must conform to regulations concerning size, number, method of capture and season. A fishing license may be required. More information is available at the Florida Wildlife Commission’s Fishing in Florida.

The historic battlefield site was named for its true geological feature that provides a crossing point at a section where the St. Marks River goes underground for a distance before reappearing, forming a natural bridge.
The property is also the site of Florida's second largest Civil War battle and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and cited as one of the Top 10 endangered Civil War sites in the United States by the Civil War Preservation Trust.
