Recreation at Yellow River Marsh Aquatic Preserve Quick Topics

Yellow River Marsh Aquatic Preserve is remote, offering excellent recreational opportunities, but few facilities to support these activities. The most popular activities are birdwatching or other types of nature appreciation, kayaking and canoeing, boating and fishing. Yellow River Marsh Preserve State Park has a small parking area, a gazebo and a short trail, but no access to the water. There are are boat ramps along the Yellow River which is a designated paddling trail. The river borders Eglin Air Force base which maintains several primitive launches and recreation areas. Be sure to obtain a base recreation permit if you plan to use these, including stopping for lunch.
