  • $ 5 admission for a cottage crammed is with odds and ends from the 19Jh. There are virtually no explanations and not worth even the views from the terrace. A pure time and waste of money!

  • This is a cool place that was once an Indian trading post,a post office and general store in what was once a wilderness frontier. In many ways Chokoloskee Island still is the end of civilization as on...  more »
  • I always enjoy coming here. The store is locked in time and there's always some item that you didn't notice on a previous trip.  more »

  • Very cool preservation of old Florida, cracker-style. Life in the islands area of southwest Florida was always tough and the Smallwood Store was area place of community and provision. It is now a museum of that way of life, not gone but going. Not to be missed.
  • “Cool little place” I read about this so I felt I had to go out of my way a bit to see it. Was it worth it? I don't know. $5 entry fee, walk around and see all this old time, musty stuff. I grew up in the 60's in a lakes region so it was kind of a cool nostalgic place to see.
  • Even at 5 bucks seems overpriced. Our visit wasn't helped by the girl at admissions who talked loudly on the phone the whole time during our visit.
  • Smallwood Store is labelled as a museum. It is not an operating store. Insofar as its qualification as a museum, it is not currated by a knowledgeable historian and offers little to no educational value. It is more a curio shop with a collection of odds and ends that represents a bygone era of everglade life. Whether it is worth the drive from the main road is questionable. If you are going to the Everglade Park for other adventures it might be worth a visit.
  • A historic location now operated as a tourist attraction with a $5.00 admission charge.
