  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • Very cool park. The rangers are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I'd love to find some time in my schedule to camp here and do more exploring on the trails. HIGHLY recommended!
  • Beautiful hidden State park- secluded and manicured. The visitors center and mini museum are well stocked with local gadgets and souvenirs. We will definitely return soon.
  • This Place is a must see and a great way to get more History. As a fellow Native American I highly Recommending people to unplug from there life to See God's Creation while we still have it !! Miss Bubba says Hi!!!
  • One of my favorite, free, natural getaways when I have a few hours to myself. Free parking, entry and ferry with basic trails fit my bike and lots of wildlife. Great staff. If you are looking to volunteer anywhere, check this place out.
