  • I love the outdoors. The snack bar has great food and gifts. The boat tour is fantastic.
  • Love this place but I love nature! And most all of the employees are nice I think some just have bad days but we do!
  • Educational. Natural beauty. Turtles, snakes, gators, birds. Visitor friendly.
  • A beautiful preserve. When it's burning you can see rare fauna.
