  • On the course direction Miami is this a stopping point with ample parking and a bridge where you can spot animals. Bird of prey seen, pigfrog heard (really funny) and large alligator. 15.

  • Free to the public. Easy to navigate. Plenty of areas to pull off and observe all of the alligators and other wildlife. Have fun here, just remember the gators are wild and faster than you think so don't get too close. Also they aren't the only dangerous wild animals in the area so keep your eyes peeled.
  • I had parked here at night looking at the stars. Big gators in the water near the boardwalk. I would be honest i would not suggest doing this at night. Big Cypress National Preserve lets you view the stars
  • If you want to see wild alligators and are not interested in any services other than an outhouse, this is definitely the best spot to see alligators. We have been visiting here since the 1990's and there is always good alligator viewing from the boardwalk with no problem. Wheelchair accessible. Just a few yards past the boardwalk, for the brave only, is access to the waters edge, but beware! These gators will eat small kids and dogs, but they are right there within feet of you. It's fascinating.
  • A roadside picnic area with a view of a fresh water river that contained alligators big and small, and many many colorful fish. Mesmerizing fun!
  • Small but nice Park. Saw here most wildlife of the Everglades together in one spot. A alligator swimming with a Turtle and some birds, 20 m from my car.
