For those of you that fish in the Goodland and 10,000 Islands area, access to this region just got a bit easier! Collier County recently opened up its newest boat ramp which is located at 750 Palm Point Drive in Goodland. I went over there this morning to check it out and it is beautiful! The site has approximately 70 spaces for trailered vehicles plus additional parking for vehicles. The launch can accomodate 2 boats at a time and there is also a very nice boardwalk along the water's edge with boat slips that can be rented. The site also has a very nice ship store although its not completely stocked yet. They will eventually have live bait in addition to tackle and groceries. There is a fish cleaning station in addition to fishing line recycle bins for patrons. Like other County ramps there is a $5 launch fee, which is pretty cheap in my opinion. If you use the ramp, keep in mind that the nearby waters are a part of Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve as well as the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge. There is a lot of shallow sensitive habitat in the area including seagrassess and oyster beds so make sure you boat wisely.
