About: The shores and coastal waters at this park provide an abundance of recreational opportunities. The breathtakingly beautiful half-mile beach welcomes visitors for swimming, snorkeling, surfing, and scuba diving. Beachcombing, picnicking, or just relaxing on the sand are also popular activities. Dynamite Point was once the training site for WWII Navy Frogmen, but is now a haven for birdwatchers. Along the south end of the park, Fort Pierce Inlet is a popular place for anglers to catch their dinners. Jack Island Preserve, located one mile north of the park, has trails for hiking, bicycling, and nature study. At the west end of the Marsh Rabbit Run Trail, visitors can climb an observation tower to get a bird's-eye view of Indian River and the island. A primitive youth/group campground is available on a reservation basis; please call the park. Located four miles east of Fort Pierce, via North Causeway.

Available to organized youth groups, the primitive camping area is located along the Indian River Lagoon and accommodates up to 32 campers. Facilities include two self-composting toilets, two cold water showers, three covered shelters with picnic tables, two standard charcoal grills, a large charcoal grill, a fire pit, a flagpole and running water. There is no electricity. The facility includes access to the Indian River Lagoon for kayaks and canoes, but no motorized boats are allowed in the area. One adult chaperone for every five youths is required. The showers and facilities are ADA accessible. Fees are $2.00 per youth per night and $5.00 per adult per night. Fees may be waived for one night upon the completion of a service project. Arrangements for a service project must be made before arrival. Camping fees include entry to park. The ocean, inlet and beaches are approximately three-quarters of a mile from the camping facilities. Lifeguards are present beachside between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Currently, no wood fires are allowed and groups may not bring wood into the park.
