  • Staff was available and eager to promote their facility, but not especially effective in conveying information; map and signage were not clear. However, we did have a crocodile sighting here! Up close...  more »
  • Beautiful short Swamp hike near the Visitors Center. Staff in the Visitors Center very helpful. You can also hike the levees which can be very productive for birding  more »
  • The water level is up so high that the alligators and wildlife that are usually so prevalant are hard to find.There is no reason for the boat ramps to be under water.  more »

  • We go often. Beautiful park and well maintained. Love the staff. Lots to explore - a place you visit again and again. Lots of great photo opportunities if you like photographing Mother Nature. Great fishing, fresh air and plenty of hiking and biking trails. Bring your small boat or rent a canoe/kayak! My only complaint, it's about time they fix that fishing pier :)
  • This was a great place to visit to see nature at it's finest, the boardwalk was very enjoyable. Also walked part of the nature trail but did not see as many birds as I thought would be there. Drove out to the boat launch which is nice and saw canoes that they rent. There is a $5.00 charge per car to go into the park.
  • We’ve gone here a couple times with school trips. The staff is very knowledgeable but the choice of activities is somewhat limited. The boardwalk is educational if you have a Ranger with you. The canoe trail 65% fun.
  • Such beautiful scenery of our Florida swamps. The trails are so easy to take, yet they're vast with lots see. We went on one of the shorter trails and were able to catch a glimpse of two gators, several birds, different species of butterflies, a turtle, and a variety of plant life. There's so much to see it'll take you more than one visit to experience it all. You can call the office for additional info. Highly recommend it for those nature buffs out there.
  • Awesome place to visit!! The board walk is amazing! We saw a few snakes sun bathing..turtles..pig frogs...and the staff at the visitor center were very helpful and enjoyable to talk with. They have a interactive night in the everglades..and airboat ride! Across the street was a very peaceful and beautiful place to go hiking! WE COULD HEAR THE HUM OF ACTUAL HONEY BEES! Just doing what God created them to do! I hope this land stays untouched for many long years!!!!!
