Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary - Review

This is a National Audubon Society Sanctuary that was mainly set up to protect and conserve the largest remaining stands of Bald cypress and Pond Cypress. These were continuously getting damaged in the continuous logging in the mid- 20th century.

This beautiful piece of nature is not very big but is definitely a true escape from the hustles of city. It is the Gateway Site for the Great Florida Birding Trail.

  • The main attraction of this sanctuary is the board walk. Along this you can walk over pine flat woods, wet prairies, pond cypress, bald cypress and marshy terrains.
  • You will find storks and other beautiful wetland birds over here.
  • Special species include limpkin, barred owl, swallow- tailed kite, American alligators and cotton mouth.
  • The visitor center of this sanctuary has a Living Machine demonstration site.

Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Naples Reviews

  • Went there towards the end of the summer. The bugs we're not that bad. The boardwalk is well maintained. Still some damage from Hurricane Irma present in the trees and the boardwalk. We got to see the ghost orchid in the Cypress tree. It is well worth the price of admission. You can actually walk thru a Cypress swamp without getting into the swamp. I will recommend this place to all of my friends and colleagues.

  • A morning well spent! The swamp was very peaceful and beautiful. The first half of the trail was mainly just the grasslands and trees, we were able to spot a lot of birds including some hawks and a hummingbird. The back half does get crowded but we saw alligators, spoon bills, ibis, wood storks and several other birds and reptiles. It was a lot of fun and a great wildlife preserve.

  • Highly recommend. Very cool boardwalk, saw all kinds birds, gators, snakes and reptiles. Naturalists on the boardwalk to help you and make sure you don't miss anything. We luckily timed our visit during a bit of a feeding frenzy at the end of the dry season. Took some stunning pictures. Make sure your camera is well charged. It's full of beautiful scenery and wildlife.

  • Fantastic boardwalk through an area that is the closest thing to Jurassic Park you will ever see. 2+ miles of boardwalk going in and out of the cypress. Lots of good signage. Lots of photo opportunities. Heard lots of animals but only really saw lizards. Saw the splash from one alligator. The rains came up quickly and land that was dry was soon under a foot water. Very interesting to be there at that moment. Nice gift shop. Pleasant people. Everyone should go.

  • A great day for the family. Since my kids were young, we made an annual pilgrimage to this amazing nature center. It is beautiful and enthralling...
