I vacation in Pensacola all the time and launch the boat at the state park which is similar to the spillway. There is a charge of 100 dollars a year to use this landing. If you want to pay day you put in the charge is 5 dollars. The landing is very clean and there is parking on paved lot with a guard. When you arrive there are several Florida water patrol officers there. They ask you for all the paper work you need for boat an passenger's. If you don't have it they give you a ticket or sent you to an area out of the way of the landing area. Works great as everyone has his paper work ready and if you are by yourself the patrol helps you with the launch. PS There is no and I mean no trash in this area and no damage trailers as there is someone watching for problems. Great way to find a stolen rig. Also great way to make sure no limits are abused.
