  • This place was great! I love that you can drive or walk, and even when driving you have the option to pull over and hop out to check things out. So many amazing birds, plus you get to see alligators as well. A great place to bring the kids for a change of pace on vacation. The kids really enjoyed all the wildlife!
  • Beautiful area. Lots of wildlife, including alligators on the banks of the lakes. Just be mindful. There's barely any shade so be prepared for that.
  • Photographing birds here is like shooting fish in a barrel. Even in the off season I was able to get close to a couple dozen species with little effort.
  • This is a beautiful secluded wetlands. It really feels like you're "in the middle of nowhere," even down to the lack of bathrooms... Be warned, it's hot due to lack of shade, and the roads are gravel, but if you take it for what it is and keep an eye out for the odd gator, this place is genuinely marvelous!
  • A not so well known gem of Brevard. Always nice to drive around spotting birds, gators, and other wildlife.
