At Casey’s Corner Store, on Highway 358, in Jena, on the way to Steinhatchee, you can veer left onto the “Road to Nowhere”, CR361. About 5 miles south you’ll cross Rocky Creek, but just before you reach the creek, you’ll see a sign marking “Rocky Creek Boat Ramp Road”. If you’re a small craft boater wishing to fish the shallow coastline here, the Rocky Creek boat ramp is an excellent start. The shallow dirt ramp onto Rocky Creek is only a short run to the Gulf of Mexico and some terrific fishing for seatrout and redfish.
While Rocky Creek is the perfect “launching spot” for anglers, it’s also a great place for sightseers in airboats, kayaks, canoes and other small craft to launch.
