The Oscar Scherer State Park was originally constructed to protect the ecosystem just outside Osprey, FL. The park is an unexpected natural oasis in the middle of an urban environment. Salt and freshwater fishing are both available. You can also swim in the water and hike or bike over 15 miles of paths during your stay. Located in Sarasota County along the Gulf Coast, this park is near Fort Myers, Sarasota, and Siesta Keys.
