  • I brought my sons to visit recently. It was great, except for the yellow jackets. The train ride is super slow, but that's to allow you the chance to take in the surroundings. Worth a visit if you've got the time.
  • This is one of my favorite parks! I had a great time walking the trails at the south entrance. I saw so much wildlife, it was well worth the drive from Atlanta.
  • It's a great place!!!! The Christmas train ride is fun and exciting !! I loved it !!
  • My husband and I went to the park on new years eve 2015, WOW what a park loved it. We love seeing alligators. We met and talked to some of the workers at the park and they were very nice. they informed us of things to see and do in the park. BOY WERE THEY RIGHT ! so much to see and do. we went on the boat ride through the swamp. Gator city WOW so many gators we loved it. And Joe our tour guide what a hoot. he was Great we just kicked backed and enjoyed the tour and Joe's story's of the swamp. we stayed the whole day and had a great time so much to see and do. we will do it again. Thanks so much for having such a great park.
