Useppa Island is an exclusive private island club with picturesque white cottages, pink pathways and lush tropical vegetation. One of the very few ways to visit Useppa is to be a member, a guest of a member or ride with us! In the 1920's Useppa was the sport fishing mecca for the rich and famous. Publishing magnate Barron Collier built a large home on the island now known as the Barron Collier Inn to accommodate his wealthy and influential friends for their tarpon fishing trips to the area. Names such as Rockefeller, Dupont, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford were all visitors to the island. Today the Collier Inn serves as the main clubhouse and dining.
