Cockroach Bay Natural Preserve State Park

The fifth area is the Natural Preserve State Park. Is is located on the west end of the peninsula and its islands wrap themselves around the north end of the subdivision.

Cockroach Bay Preserve is 1,027 acres in size. This preserve consists of a group of islands stretching from the mouth of Cockroach Bay to the northeast into the Little Manatee River. Cockroach Bay is unquestionable the most beautiful and unspoiled section of Tampa Bay north of the Skyway Bridge. Mangrove islands stretch for 5 miles from the south edge of the mouth of Cockroach Bay to the US 41 bridge on the Little Manatee River. This is an extremely popular fishing destination, and parking at the boat ramp is at a premium during the peak spring season.
