  • Great little hiking spot! Not a lot of shade through like half the trails, so just come prepared with sunscreen, water, sunglasses, and a hat. Good opportunities for pictures of plants and wildlife and there are good places for picnics! Also has seating spots for groups on a nature trip.
  • The turtles were so cool! We saw at least a dozen. Gina was very nice to talk with, we exchanged nature stories. The elevated boardwalk and covered viewing area were absolutely fantastic . we saw lots of dragonflies and butterflies and wasps and crayfish and minnows and damselflies. We truly enjoyed our time and look forward to our return.
  • The trails were kept clear of brush and look-out towers were a great resting spot to just look out over the marshes. It was a really beautiful piece of land.
  • This is a must see if you love nature and are staying nearby. It has plenty of educational and entertainment opportunities for the whole family. They also have a very informative website if you want to go there and check out all the details before stopping by.
  • Interesting nature park that seems to have a lot of educational opportunities for children. Nice raised walking decks above the swamps...where are the gators
