  • I know this refuge for nearly 20 years. Although there are far fewer birds over the years, I always return with pleasure and gives me an annual pass. The Visitor Center offers a presentation very interesting on the Everglades. A nice video invites you to visit the Park in airboat (departure of Lox Road a Boca Raton). This is one of the best excursions to airboat I know. Being not very in shape, I'm never risky a walk in kayak (5 miles) that is proposed.

  • Terrific boardwalk through the cypress swamp, you just never know what you'll see. be sure to visit the other sites up the road (turn right on your way out) - there is a pavilion overlooking a small p...  more »
  • The boardwalk is a nice walk through nature - peaceful frog and bird sounds. This wasn't a great place for taking pictures for me, but we did spot an owl and a woodpecker. Very zen.  more »

  • Great boardwalk into cypress swamp for all ages. Midday on recent hot afternoon was not best time for wildlife observation. We returned several days later at 9:30 AM and rented a double kayak and spent about 3 hours kayaking on the designated 5.5 mile canoe trail. Saw four gators and lots of birds along the route. If you like to kayak in the wild, this place is a definite go to place. Early morning probably best time & bring lots of water, hat, bug spray, and sun screen.
  • Fun place to visit. Sometimes you can see interesting Wildlife. I seen a Bobcat here once. Nice flat Irrigation Canal hiking trails
  • The 5.5 mile canoe trail is great. It's in real everglades with many varieties of birds, alligators, and we've even seen an 8 PT buck! The 3+ hour paddle is worth it.
  • Gem! Walk the cypress swamp boardwalk trail or the gravel impoundment trails. Great opps to see migratory or local birds, alligators, and much more. Bike trail at boat launch too. Rent a canoe and paddle through the Everglades.
  • The swamp walk was awesome. The rest is for the serious hikers/bikers. Tower with telescope is a short mile. The area is huge. Edited to add depending where/when you are there bring off spray or suffer. Sector C7 has 2 alligators.
