Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park reviews
Huge forested swamp definitely worth exploring by car, foot or bicycle. The road is bumpy and narrow but fairly well maintained. Clean restroom facilities at the entrance. Visited during COVID 19... more »

This national park can be quite an adventure if you are willing to leave your car at a gate and go for a hike along the many paths. You will experience interesting animal noises and see plenty of animals such as birds, fish, snakes, and insects. If lucky you can spot larger animals and alligators as well. As it is a swamp make sure you are dressed accordingly with plenty of repellent and drinking water. Enjoy nature at its best but do not expect any visitor luxury. Currently (July 2019) the Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk is closed for renovations which will take awhile.
The park is great. There are plenty of places to park and to explore. There was a drink machine and Rangers around. The bathrooms are clean and well serviced. Several large lakes and some small ponds. All with fish. Then off course there are the canals which have fish and alligators, but so many fish. Don't forget to get gas before you head down that way. Well worth the trip though, beautiful and relaxing.
