About E.G. Simmons Regional Park 
E.G. Simmons Park has over 7 miles of shoreline and has been a favorite of outdoor
Enthusiasts since the mid-1960’s. The park was developed from 258 acres of native mangroves and open land areas intertwined with waterways. An additional 200 acres of
Mangrove swamp has been preserved as a bird sanctuary.

The Park features 18 picnic shelters, 2 playgrounds, 2 boat launches and 700 ft of beach on beautiful Tampa Bay. The Park offers several fishing piers and plentiful areas for bank fishing. A canoe launch and trail are nestled among the waterways and mangrove islands.

The Park also features 2 campgrounds with 98 sites, which many have water access. Both areas have public restrooms, shower houses and 2 RV dump stations for your convenience. All campsites come with electricity, water, picnic table and fire ring. There are no reservations for sites, everything is done on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Park is open 363 days a year (closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas) with summer and winter hours.
