Clark Island is a Private Paradise that has endless possibilities for quiet living or the perfect Sportsman's getaway. For those that demand the best, imagine developing this Island as a fishing/hunting lodge for expeditions that cannot be compared to anything else in Florida. The Island is just north of Cedar Key, about a 20 minute boat ride from the public launch. The easiest access, however, is by leaving from the Shell Mound Camp Ground, which is a 10 minute boat ride to the island. Clark Island is also accessible from the town of Suwannee out the mouth of the Suwannee River. The current owner uses an airboat so that he can make the trip at any tide, although it is accessible by regular boat except at low tide. The Island teems with wildlife: deer, raccoons, alligators, armadillos, and wild hogs. The Island is home to at least one nesting pair of Ospreys. Bald Eagles are often spotted hunting the area. Manatees and Tarpon have been spotted in the Preacher Hole. The fishing is just short of unbelievable. The famous "Preacher Hole" is literally just a cast away from the bank. 60+ pound Black Drum are routinely caught in this spot. Just around the tip of the Island from the Preacher Hole, not more than 100 yards away, is an oyster bar that is a favorite, all you can eat buffet feeding spot for the Black Drum and huge Redfish. Clark Island offers 35 acres of uplands, with a total of 176 acres, boasting 15 feet of elevation at the highest point. Building a slightly raised home on this site would give one a 360 degree vista of the surrounding marsh, coastal islands and the Gulf. Privacy would abound, along with a sense of "going back in time." Fishing, hunting and observing nature at its best would be an everyday occurrence. Conveniently located between Cedar Key and Suwannee, Clark Island can be reached by water only. Access from both cities is quick and easy but the most convenient departure spot is from the Shell Mound campground and boat launch. Traveling via car from Chiefland or from South 19, just 4 miles from Cedar Key, turn right on the Shell Mound road. Look for the brown Florida State Park signs.
Take HWY 19/98 S. of Chiefland, go W on SR 24 to CR 347 follow to CR 325 to Shell Mound Fish Camp
