Carl Johnson Boat RampFree Entertainment at Carl Johnson Boat Ramp 47/365

You don’t even need to own a boat!  If you’re looking for a good time simply drive to Lover’s Key, just north of Dog Beach, park and watch the show.  There are hours of free entertainment to be had watching the launching and loading of boats and jet skis. While it is a little silly to consider this entertainment, it’s true and you know it. 

Bonita Springs, Florida is a water based community loaded with beaches, back bay, the intracoastal waterway, the Imperial River and all of it’s tributaries.  We are a boating community and Lover’s Key offers one of many, many public boat ramps for launching watercraft or just for entertainment purposes.

The Carl Johnson State Park boat ramp also has vendors with kayak/canoe rentals and bait for sale. So you can also paddle around the mangroves and black island. The water is shallow and warm and it is a likely spot to see manatees and dolphins.
