Isles of Capri Paddlecraft Park

The Isles of Capri Paddlecraft Park is the only public access facility in Collier County designed exclusively for launching paddle crafts, which are non-motorized vessels such as canoes, kayaks and paddleboards. The facility features a ramp, picnic pavilions, and restrooms which will also be accessible to pedestrians from the nearby Collier Boulevard boat ramp. The Park provides public access to McIlvane Bay, a shallow mangrove fringed bay that provides outstanding opportunities for wildlife viewing and exploring quiet backwaters in a relatively unexplored part of the Reserve.

Collier County Parks & Recreation has entered into an agreement with the Reserve to manage the park for sustainable use. Launch fees are $4.
