The perfect rest stop for us with several alligators resting in the water and a guide educating us on what we saw. Well worth a stop!

Stopped for a short little visit. A nice short boardwalk to see many alligators, birds, fish and a turtle. Wasn't overly busy either. Bathrooms available.

We went to Turner River Roadside Park to see the alligators sunning on the bank and swimming in the water. We saw fish in the river and birds sunning themselves. Nice boardwalk along the river.
