    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
