Beautiful location with glass bottom boat tours - a must see! The park is VERY well kept with walking trails, camp sites, picnic areas, etc.

We were in the area so stopped for the glass bottom boat tour. Since the 90 min tour is only given certain times of the year on Friday Saturday Sunday, the 30 minute tour was the only one available to us. Very short trip. We...More

I must agree with a reviewer; the park isn't what it was and i applaud that about this place. The State owns the park now (for the past 3 years) and is connecting it with nearby Silver River State Park. Gone are the exotic animals...More

Enjoyed the hikes. If it were up to me the river trail would be closer to the river. Of course I understand there is a swamp there because I hiked through it which was actually very pleasant. Word of warning.....the mosquitoes can be annoying but...More

You can still do the glass bottom boat tours! We took the 90 minute tour and enjoyed it very much. I expect you can see pretty much the same things on the 30 minute tour. We saw birds, turtles, fish, and small alligators. Nothing spectacular,...More
