We went cayaking and saw many beautiful fish, turles in and out the water, alligators and birds. The water is so clear you can see everything very good. Afterwards we took the glassbotom boats. Quite expensive for 30 minutes but worth the money. So beautiful!

We went on the extended glass bottom boat tour. The information about the park and the animals and reptiles we saw were very interesting. The water is crystal clear.

Beautiful park, if you want to walk around, I'll recommend going on winter time or spring time is extremely hot in summer time FL i know! Ans just be aware that you can't swim in this park!

Park is beautiful but the glass bottom boat had a different schedule, not the times listed on the web site. So we were not able to go on either the 30 min or the 90 min trip. Very disappointing.

What a serene, lovely experience. The 90 minute glass bottom boat cruise is so interesting. The wildlife is closeup and diverse - from wild monkeys, alligators, wading birds, ducks, turtles to all kinds of fish swimming in the crystal clear springs water can all be...More

Went with friends to take the glass bottom boat tour. We opted for the short 45 minute one. Next time for a couple more bucks I'd do the extended one that goes down the river than just around the lake. Beautiful water and monster flow...More

Response from MichaelW1969 | Reviewed this property |
I think it was around 4pm
Would you recommend any particular cabin over the others? Are they all the same size and configuration? Is any one close to a stream or creek?

I'm sorry, I live on the coast and I drive there and back to kayak. I am not familiar with the cabins. Good luck and I hope you enjoy your trip.
