Rocky Bayou is located on the north shore of Choctawhatchee Bay and is bordered by the Rocky Bayou Aquatic Preserve. Rocky Bayou, the main feature of the park, is the trailing arm of Choctawhatchee Bay and is popular for boating and fishing. A double-lane boat ramp makes this one of the best boat-launching locations on the bay, where saltwater fish is found. Other opportunities for recreation include hiking, bicycling, picnicking, canoeing and wildlife viewing. A well-shaded campground is available for full-facility camping.
