Alligator Alley, Summerdale

4.7
#8 of 77 in Wildlife in Alabama
Start your guided adventure with a walk to the elevated viewing platform, where you can see over 450 alligators from hatchlings to mature adults, relaxing, sunbathing, courting and nesting. After a breath taking view, continue your adventure with a nature walk on the elevated boardwalk and see alligators in their natural habitat along with other natural inhabitants such as turtles, ospreys, owls and bull frogs only a couple feet away!

Feed them. Hold them.

Our expert staff members are always happy to chat with you and answer anything you ever wanted to know about gators!

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, be sure you’re here during feeding times. Want to feed them yourself? Grab some alligator chow and we’ll let you be the master! But don’t worry, we won’t just throw you to the gators – we’ll be there to give instruction and supervise, of course.

  • Adorable stop! It is so open and airy and the property is gorgeous. The staff is friendly. My kids got to hold a baby alligator. I suggest bringing a picnic lunch to enjoy on one of the many picnic areas. There are all different ages of alligators to be seen. You can buy food for them at $17 a bucket. That is fun too! The smaller alligators need smaller size food that can be purchased outside their habitat with quarters. I consider Alligator Alley to be a must visit place with children of any age. Adults will enjoy the stroll too! Plan to spend about 1.5 hours here.
  • Amazing afternoon visiting with the alligators and snakes. Staff was awesome! Kids loved holding the alligators, watching the feeding and tossing the food to the gators. Beautiful environment and very relaxing. We will definitely be back next time we're nearby.
  • Gorgeous day for a trip to alligator Alley. Slightly too cold for the alligators to be as active as they can get, I guess the best days are when it's right around 85 degrees out and the Gators are moving around like crazy. Still, great day with the family, they really enjoyed it. I really like this Low key roadside Attraction near the Florida Alabama state line. It's a favorite stop of ours when we go to Pensacola from Atlanta.
  • This was awesome! I recommend going mid day or late afternoon as the alligators are more active the warmer it is! Time out for a feeding as they are quite entertaining! The elevated walking path goes on for quite a way back into the swampy area. Fun place for kids.
  • Fun day to go look at alligators in a safe setting. They feed them and you can hold the baby. They weren't really active when we went on a cold winter day, but they said spring and summer are good times to go. Inexpensive.
