  • One of the better / must see tours in the area. They take you by an old school bus through the woods,. See lots of animals and very old Florida. They have a snack bar for lunch. 
  • We took our friends out on the bus tour (with 4 small kids) and had a great time. It was very informative and the kids thought all of the animals were very cool. It is a nice little trip, which takes ...  read more »
  • I can connect just the others. The farm is not easy to find - or the entrance there. Believed not been tuned as one stands suddenly right on it. It's all very simple. Worth seeing are the terrain and the tour. The buses are very dirty and without window. Contact with mosquitoes is guaranteed! It is still interesting and if you in the against the is should you join in quiet times.

  • An experience for those wanting to see what Florida's ecology is all about. Tours of the area will show the wildlife and fauna of southwest Florida in this huge ranching and timber operation area. A several mile long hiking trail here connects to a public nature park north of here on Bermont Road and highway 31.
  • Cool idea although seems like it will cost alot
  • I called to make a reservation for July 16 and was told : Park will close as of July 9, 2016 until they find new management. How sad! I was looking forward to going as I've read such good reviews.
  • Very nice hike. Take the orange loop trail for a scenic 2.1 mile easy to follow trail. Can be swampy, so be prepared to hike through some water. We hiked the outer loop 5.16 miles, that is a little harder to follow near the 4 mile point. Nice piece of old Florida. Saw foot prints of bobcat and coyote. Saw a black racer and a lot of deer.
  • Nice place
