Recreation at Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve Quick Topics

Our visitor center will be open for our normal hours on Tuesday, July 4, 2017.

Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve (ANERR) has a tremendous variety of recreational opportunities, including boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, camping, swimming, picnicking, sunbathing and wildlife viewing. Some of these opportunities, such as visiting the beach or swimming are most accessible by visiting a state park, but many can be enjoyed on your own just by going to the nearest boat ramp or dock.
