Dee Dee Bartels Park

Dee Dee Bartels Park is located up north 14th Street. Turn north off of Atlantic Avenue and travel a few miles. You’ll pass a large cemetery on the left, go over a bridge and bear left for 1/2 mile. Turn right into Dee Dee Bartels Park.

Fishing is allowed from both piers that are adjacent to the boat ramp. You can also walk down on the beach, either side of the boat ramp and fish from the surf. To the north there are a couple of rock jetties. Within a few feet you will be on Fort Clinch State Park. Technically, you need a Park pass which you would purchase at the main entrance off Atlantic Avenue. To the south, there are some derelict barges to fish around.

Use “bottom” rigs such as a fish finder rig or Carolina Rig, or a jig. You could also use a slip float fished deep. Sheepshead are found around the concrete pier especially during cooler months. Flounder are found around the pier also. Seatrout, Whiting, Croaker, and Black Drum out deeper.

Please be mindful of boats coming in to dock – move your lines out of the water. Restrooms available. Large pavilion and park grills. Plenty of parking. Lighted parking lot and fishing pier. Pier, pavilion, restrooms are handicap accessible.
