This place has a beach that if you dig down an inch you hit the swamp. It was built out in the Swamp mud with sand dumped over Mud. Stay away and go to one of the springs (HUNTER). There is some nice boardwalk there...More

Best boat ramp ever, great access and parking, quality ramps, docks, restrooms. Easy to find and right on the Crystal River within a short boat ride to the Gulf.

This is a great place to spend the morning. There were several species of wood peckers. It's a short walk to the boat ramp and dock where we saw manatees swim by.

This is a nice little trail that connects Fort Island Beach to the pier. Only takes a few minutes to walk through though.
