Brownville Park & Boat Ramp

Located right on the Peace River, Brownville Park & Boat Ramp offers a convenient boat ramp to launch your kayak, canoe, or boat.  Many kayakers and canoeists paddle north, up the picturesque Peace River, then turn around for a lazy tranquil float back.  You are welcome to bring your camp gear and spend the night on one of our campsites.  The next day, head downstream for more exploration of this timeless place.

The Peace River Frontier is rich in pioneer history as well as natural history.  The fossil beds of the Peace River are world famous for significant paleontological finds.  The river was utilized in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s as a source of commercial pebble phosphate.

This beautiful floodplain forest evokes the sense of real Old Time Florida.”  In the center of the sweet gums and hickory bay heads is a beautiful live oak hammock.  In the late evenings barred owls gather in these ancient oaks and perform an owl opera.  Some evenings these owl recitals can become quite rambunctious.

Nestled beneath the antique oaks are campsites available for all.
