  • Fun climb for kids and agile adults. The kids wanted to cross the bridge several times. The structure is very secure. Access via an easy walk through the nature trail.  more »
  • I loved the beautiful willow trees by the bird sanctuary. Hiking was easy, bridge and tower were fun.  more »
  • Just a short walk in the woods to reach the walkway and tower. The walkway isn't as high up as we thought it would be but then when you climb the steps to the top of the tower you are quite high up. H...  more »

  • This park is gorgeous and wild! There are alligators galore to see in their own habitat so be careful! The trails are groomed, easy to walk on and this park features a great safe observation tower to climb and look over the entire park. It's a canopy walkway with stairs and a bridge to the observation deck. You will definitely see alligators, vultures! and all kinds of birds while walking the incredible walk. There is a great camping area for tent and RV camping. They have a large gift shop and food grill as well. I would definitely recommend staying at or make a special trip to this State Park. You can't find a more entertaining with spectacular views and wildlife for ONLY $6 per car load!
