  • Great experience. My daughter loved to see all of the reptiles. She didn't care much for the snakes, but loved the snapping turtles. The trail was nice and the view of the water was amazing. I will be going back again.
  • Good place to spend some time with some little ones. Plus they learn a little running around looking at the areas.
