ISLE OF CAPRI PADDLECRAFT PARK
Kayaking at Rookery Bay
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.
