    Stump Pass State Park

    At the southwest corner of Charlotte County, there is a mile of beach where seashells and shark teeth wash up, and anglers fish the surf for prize catches. Visitors can enjoy an excellent view of the Gulf of Mexico, as well as a stretch of undeveloped Florida coastline. Visitors come to this secluded beach to enjoy year-round swimming and sunbathing. Shelling is best during the winter months. A hiking trail passes through five distinct natural communities that provide homes for many species of wildlife. Covered picnic tables are located along the trail. While at the park, visitors might see doplhins, West Indian manatees, gopher tortoises, snowy egrets, least terns, and magnificent frigatebirds.

    Take Hwy 41 South to Hwy 776 to Englewood. Continue on 776 to Beach Rd then turn right to Englewood beach. Turn left through the roundabout and follow the road south until it dead ends at Stump Pass Park. The address above is to the Weston Hotel. Pass the Weston and the road ends at the Park.

    $3.00 per vehicle. Please use the honor box to pay fees. Correct change is required.

    Bring sun screen and a lunch to eat at the beach area.

    Can someone tell me on this trip would we be stopping during the trip for lunch and bringing lunch in our kayaks or doing the entire trip and having lunch back at the launch site? Is this a leisurely paddle or a fast one. ? Never been on one of your paddles. But have been kayaking a long time. But just got my own kayak a few days ago. A tribute.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
