  • This is a fun drive, doesn't take too long and we saw multiple alligators and all different kinds of birds. Definitely a fun thing to do with kids!

  • A few years ago this was a great local place for wildlife, but i feel it has lost a lot of its charm. There is still some decent birding during the season, but it is just different. Several of the trees the Herons used for nesting have decayed and died. Would be nice to create some platforms as replacements. Also happened to catch some teenagers shrooming there by jumping the fence into the pasture. Called the Sheriff's, and they were quick and took care of it. Thid isn't what we need in that area. Ruins it for others
  • According to their website, the hours of operation: April-September 6am-8pm (daily) February & March & October 7am-7pm (daily) November-January 7am-6pm (daily) We saw blue heron & an alligator eating a bird! So cool :)
  • A great place to see the nature and take pictures of alligators and birds.
  • Absolutely my favorite place in Brevard County FL to take photographs of wildlife. I visit several times a week and never get enough!
  • First sighting of an alligator in the wild. Awesome.
