  • The place is public and you can go any day. I went with my kids (5 and 6 years) Sunday. They are 3 houses where bats (400,000 of them) are housed. One should arrive a few minutes before sunset (this schedule is available at the web site listed on TripAdvisor). You have to position yourself against these houses (where are all the people). Bats come out alone in flocks a few minutes after sunset. There is a parking lot on the side. He is supposed to be only for people with credential UF. But everyone parks equal.

  • Went here on a recent trip back to Gainesville for the Gator Game. Was really neat to see the bats again. Only complaint was there tons of bugs flying around.  more »
  • very cool place just at sunset to see all the bats fly out other that that time might not be very interesting to visit  more »
