There is a kayak ramp out into the bayou along with a few nature trails one with a pretty decent hill for Florida. The piers are in the process of being rebuilt but you can normally fish out on them and are great observation points for bird and wildlife observation.

I have been many times there.. better on sunset. Look for dolphins, rabbits, birds and once I saw a small alligator on the pond that ends after the small river.. I had no idea that this pond had alligators. Recently there is new paths and walking board that reaches the ocean.. Also its a good biking area.. Free, just park... More

We started our ride from Seminole City Park on the Pinellas Trail on our way to the Skyway Bridge trail. We detoured on to Clam Bayou Trail in Gulfport. The park and trails are very nice. It is also a nice place to kayak.

For my first solo excursion with my new kayak I picked Clam Bayou. What a wonderful choice it was. They have made many upgrades to the park including new rest rooms, parking, racks to unload you kayaks (or paddle boards!), a new launch dock and new bridges and viewing docks. I would recommend visiting close to high tide as some... More

I'm new to St. Petersburg and happened on this park while kayaking. What a cool little place. The boardwalk is all new and very nicely laid out. There is a floating dock where you can tie up your kayak and walk around the board walk. There is also a covered space for picnicking and restrooms/water nearby. Very nice and new... More

I was in Gulfport for their Tuesday Morning Market and decided to check out Clam Bayou. There was little signage on where to go so I just found a path and started walking. There were some areas with boardwalks where you could look out over the water. Unfortunately for me, I got to one of these dead ends, was not... More

This hidden little gem is St Petersburg's newest multi-million dollar park with miles of concrete biking and walking/running trails. They have a men's and women's restroom with indoor plumbing, docking for kayaks, and nature watching throughout. So much to see and do! I highly recommend checking out this park.

Clam Bayou is a nice little park to walk around with the dog. Lovely views from on top of the hill. Used to have more wildlife but the pollution from the sewage has driven off so many birds that used to live here. See the Osprey Nests on top of the poles. Nice to sit on the benches watch the...

We went through a run here after hearing about the trails and needing a break from hitting the concrete. Saw a lot of birds and some crabs. There was also a flea market going on in the area which added some chaos to the atmosphere, but seemed like it could have been fun to visit. It's a nice change from... More

We were out on a Saturday to visit several parks in the area and just happened to drive around here. We saw a lot of birds, beautiful trees and water, On our way home, we saw lots of pelicans. I enjoy photography so I had a good time taking pictures
