  • We discovered this piece of paradise 'by mistake'! We parked our car and took a little ferry over to the island. It is only a 5 minutes ride. Everything is free, ferry ride and entrance to the park. W...  more »

  • As part of their Christmas gift, my husband and I rented a cabin here on the Island for our grandkids ages 12, 10 and 7. The ferry ride over was just the beginning of a grand experience for us all! Ch...  more »

  • Nice nature walks and beautiful scenery await you after a short ferryboat ride to the island. An abundance of wildlife and flora are to be found here. Boating and camping make this a fun place for the whole family. I wish they would rebuild the tall observation tower that was taken down many years ago, but this is still a great park to visit.
  • Great place! This is my fiance and I second annual trip! We always have a great time! Very clean facility, that's a plus. My brother and his fiance along with her daughter went and we all were sad to leave!
  • I truly enjoyed my visit to this park after waiting for almost three months for it to reopen, it didn't disappoint. The island is so serene and relaxing. The staff was all very helpful and nice. The park was clean and well-managed. Loved the short ferry ride and the trail hike . The nature trail was still closed but there are other routes you could take to get to the mounds, and the other side of the river. Saw different kinds of birds along the way. The Visitor Center is a great place to learn about the history of the island and its wildlifes. I couldn't recommend it enough, and it's only a short drive from Orlando!!! I will definitely be back.
  • Great location for a day trip. We ate at the restaurant, very tasty and went on the boat ride the was really fun. Going back soon.
  • Well maintained park. Rangers very helpful. Nice ride on ferry to get to park. Dogs allowed. Rentals for canoes and bikes. Great family atmosphere.
