You guessed it, Indian Mound Park is named for the Indian burial midden in the center of the park. The park is a rustic point of land with no wheelchair access. It has nice views of Lemon Bay and a public boat ramp for everyone to use. It's a great place to bring a coffee or picnic and cast a line..at mid to high tide.

The park has a wide entrance for boats. It has some paved and some shell road and parking.
The only water front bench in the shade.
A great view of the bay from the benches along the point of the park.
The tree growth covers the Indian middens. The little pavilions have BBQ grills for picnics and cookouts. This where the Pioneers Days cardboard boat race occurs every year. The park is a couple of blocks from the old Dearborn Street area of town.
There is plenty of parking here. The parking lot is shell/sand and is often in rough shape.
This is the Indian Mound Park Pavilion on the front side of the middens. It can be rented for get togethers or large family gatherings.
The main pavilion has a small restroom and has water available.
There is large parking available for trucks and trailers.
Indian Mound Park has two boat ramps with docks that are in good condition. As with all boat ramps in Florida that I have used, they are slippery so be careful launching your boat.
Benches are at the end of the launch docks.
There is a dock inbetween the launch ramps so depending on the wind, you can board your boat after you get it off the trailer.

Next to the south ramp is the Indian Mound Park Information sign about the park and a map of Lemon Bay navigation.
