Econfina River State Park is a state park located in Volusia County, Florida. The park consists of 1,936 acres (7.69km2) and includes the confluence of the Econhna River with the Ochlockonee River. It is at 8700 Estero Blvd., Fort Myers Beach, between Big Carlos Pass and New Pass. On May 15, 1982, the park was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places as Confrina-Ochlockonee Site. According to its official web page, “The park’s main attraction is the rivers themselves.
Two perennial rivers meet here – the Econhna on the east and the Ochlockonee on the west – creating one of the nation’s only true river deltas.” The site has been preserved as part of an effort to protect the area’s natural resources and history. Amenities include boat ramps, picnic areas, and nature trails. Visitors can also explore historic sites related to the SpanishAmerican War and learn about William Jennings Bryan, who visited this location while serving as Secretary of State under President William McKinley.
