Gulf Access via Public Boat Ramp
Bay Park North is one of the best kept secret boat ramps in Bonita Springs, Florida. It’s located at the north end of Little Hickory Island. It is, quite literally, a secret. Oddly, it’s not on a city of Bonita Springs or county parks map as a facility.
The easiest way to find the boat ramp park is to drive north on Hickory Boulevard to the Big Hickory Seafood Grille and Marina. Bay Park North is tucked away at the the base of the bridge on the east side of Hickory Blvd.
Bay Park North offers speedy access to the Gulf of Mexico via Big Hickory Pass and the Great Calusa Blueway trails. Parking is free but limited. Rules of parking include unhooking your boat trailer from your vehicle and taking a little space as possible.
Bay Park North is a tiny little park with a lot to offer. This is a view of the mangroves across Big Hickory Pass at Broadway Channel. Happy Boating. Click the link if you need a copy of the Blueway Map.
