  • I was so grateful for the opportunity to spend a few short minutes exploring this gem in the middle of nowhere, or so it seemed. I intend to go back for more hiking, exploring and photographs.  more »

  • Such a beautiful place to spend time and be at one with the earth. I have seen many animals during my visits such as alligators, turtles, hawks, eagles, ducks, multiple species of birds and more! I love Lake Woodruff and recommend any Florida native or visitor to stop by and pay the refuge a visit. You will not regret it!
  • Website, reviews, etc. need to highlight NO PETS policy. Understandable, gator issues, etc. But you'd never know it from the homepage of the official website, other reviews. NO PETS. Fine. Didn't know, despite checking for that VERY fact. But NO PETS.
  • Real good birding and peaceful walking time. Wide variety of birds here during migrations and other times.
  • BE VERY CAREFUL!! There is a high speed train track near the entrance. LOOK both ways before crossing. Beautiful place!
  • Great place to hike, fish, ride a bike, or just wander about. Saw lots of alligators, turtles, and various birds.
