  • Maybe I have gone at bad times but if you are just going for a casual walk, pick somewhere else. There is not a lot to see in the close areas. Would recommend for longer hikes.
  • They have a giant alligator that hangs out under the fishing pier. I think his name is George but don't quote me on that. They also have a boardwalk that goes through a cypress swamp. It's about a fifteen minute walk thru. It is a great place to bring out of town guests. Bring bug spray.
  • As someone mentioned, this does feel like a sacred place. I enjoyed seeing the many artists painting landscapes around the refuge especially near the marsh. Notice to visitors: When you come to visit, don't expect to see every animal that lives in the habitat...this is not a zoo. I think the greatest gift the refuge has to offer is peace and quiet and a meditative atmosphere.
  • Great preserve. Great staff. A picture worth a thousand words, so....
  • An unusually well-done nature center. Boardwalk is a waste of time if you are searching for fauna rather than flora. Good walks nearby.
