Tifft Nature Preserve Reviews & Ratings
A place where you can take pleasant hike in nature. You can choose to walk through trees or on the boardwalks. An individual can also fish here if they want. The visitor center has a small library and decent staff. The restroom is located here. I've always had positive experiences when I came to this preserve. The only thing is that dogs/ pets are not allowed unless they are service animals.
Highly recommended! It's not a typical park. It is kid friendly but there are no restrooms or barely any shelters if you get caught out in the rain. I witnessed a lady pushing a stroller, and I could tell she regretted bringing it along. If your looking for a wilderness experience in a fairly small park, then this is for you.
I love Tift, as a visitor, and the kids I nanny seem to love the camp. But EVERY single time I pick them up from camp, no one knows where they are. The counselors seem to be very disorganized, have no way of contacting other counselors (no walkies or anything) and there is no sense of urgency to find the children. One day the counselor I was speaking to literally told me that the kids I was there to pick up weren't there and that I was at the wrong location, even though I told her twice I had found one of them and was looking for the other. Considering that part of this program is wandering through the woods, its disappointing that they can't keep better track of their kids.
I like walking here because if you get deep enough in, you can't hear anything but the wind in the trees, the birds, and the insects. I like that there are benches scattered around so you can just have a sit and take in the scenery.
It's a beautiful place, spending a picnic here should be on your to-do list at least once in a lifetime!
