The true angler’s paradise, Wakulla County’s fish camps cater to both boaters and fishermen.

Overlooking the Wakulla River in St. Marks, Shell Island Fish Camp and Motel has been family owned and operated since 1962. Located on a well-marked, easy-to-run channel of the Wakulla River, Shell Island can handle large or small groups, families, companies, tour groups, as well as RVs.

They feature three types of lodging: a 24-room motel, four 2-bedroom cabins with full kitchens, and 5 one-room cabins, all of which have daily maid service. Other amenities include a covered pavilion with picnic tables and free use of the boat ramp. The motel is also adjacent to Shell Island Marina, which is a full-service marina. Shell Island is convenient to many of the area’s attractions, such as the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge, Wakulla Springs State Park, and Fort San Marcos de Apalache.
