Nice place if you like a hike. Trails are really trails between 1 mile to 1 1/2 miles long. Seen some wildlife including gators but it was midday so I am sure they were hunkered down from the heat. Visitor center was nice and cool....More

We saw eagles, osprey, turtles, plenty of fish and a 6 foot alligator with a youngster in tow. The trails are tropical and well maintained. Friendly staff and very readable maps are a great help. This is not a zoo so be careful. Awesome visit.

If you like hiking it is a great stop. We didn't see much for wildlife except a few misquotes. The trails are well marked. Even though we did not see anything really we did find foot prints in the soft dirt and we would identify...More

Very disappointed with what we found upon arrival. Based on reviews, sounded like a good choice for seeing nature. Guess we aren't into hiking enough to enjoy!

It is free, But donations are always welcomed. To donate you can give in the main office in the parking area. There is no pressure to give, no set amount. But I am sure every penny helps. :) That is my 2 cents.
