Hickey's Creek Mitigation Park

Hickey's Creek Mitigation Park Hickey's Creek Mitigation Park is a popular stop for people kayaking in the area. This wildlife refuge is home to such threatened species as the scrub jay and gopher tortoise. The park covers 862 acres, and five miles of rugged hiking trails lead you through multiple environments, including hardwood hammocks, freshwater marshes, and cypress swamps. There's a fishing pier, and amphitheater, and restrooms. The park also has two picnic areas and bridges across the creek.

The kayak launch/landing is about half a mile off the main trail, and you'll have to carry your watercraft to get there. You can also access the park by launching at Franklin Locks or Calooshatchee Regional Park and traveling along the Caloosahatchee River.

Hickey's Creek Mitigation Park is open from 7AM to 6PM daily. Parking is $1 per hour or $5 for the day. Visit the web site for information about guided walks, kayak tours, and other programs offered at the park.
