  • My father in law came over to visit us from Washington DC and said he wanted to see an alligator. We took him to this amazing place and guess what? Yep! You guessed it. We found a couple of them and recorded one attacking and eating a turtle. He had a great time and so did my wife and kids. Highly recommend

  • Lots of parking. Check ahead of time if you want to visit the Nature Center as its hours and days are limited. It's fun to see the baby gators and turtles in the center. Expect to see turtles, birds, an occasional iguana and there is one really huge gator who likes to sun and is pretty impressive. ( go to the left dock to start your walk and it's not far to his favorite spot from that direction ) it's a very nice walk and has a good breeze so not bad on even very hot days.

  • Terrible..No water .. hardly any birds saw dead turtles..where they was some water it was all brown scum on top and nothing could live in such conditions..We have been going there for years and have never seen it in such terrible condition.. wasn't even clean in bathrooms.. they smelled and we're filthy and they didn't even have toilet tissue.. What is going on??? I wasn't the only one complaining out there.. People we ran into and talked to couldn't believe it..If you want people to enjoy this once beautiful place you need to address some of these problems..!!!

  • Lovely respite from all the developments and shopping plazas. A couple of boardwalk loops provide nice wildlife viewing. Suitable for all ages.
