Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park

Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park allows pets (under full control, on leashes no longer than 6 feet) but not on the beaches. In the coastal hammock at the north end of the parking area is a picnic pavilion big enough to hold 10 picnic tables and 100 people. To reserve it call the park at 239-597-6196. Between each parking lot and the beach you'll find picnic tables at the end of short boardwalks. Each one is shaded in the coastal hammock area and each has its own table and grill. There are six universally accessible restrooms at the state park, and freshwater rinse showers are available, too. Each restroom has an interpretive feature nearby, and each feature is about a different subject. Rangers give guided beach tours on Wednesday's during turtle season, and they offer tours on Friday's during most of the rest of the year about things like native plants, mangroves, barrier islands, castnetting and bird watching.

Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park is open from 8 am to sunset, every day of the year. However, winter can get really busy and if there are too many people on the beach, the gates are closed.
