tarpon and other large gamefish. The Flagler Bridge off the southern
peninsula (with the train trestle) is now a historic site. Fee to visit
and/or camp. Reservations to camp are needed most times 6 months in
Around the 1920's, Richter Perky attempted to establish a fishing camp on Sugarloaf Key. The mosquitoes in the area were so ferocious that he decided to build a bat tower in 1929. However, the bats abandon their post instead of dining on the mosquitoes. The bat twoer still stands today, as a reminder of challenges faced by early settlers.
