This is a great place for a change of pace. It is unique in many ways, with beautiful scenery, and wildlife to enjoy. The staff at the park are friendly, make a real effort to assist where needed and have a strong focus on visitors enjoying their stay. We rented a cabin and found it to be clean, comfortable and adequately appointed. We took the boat tour and rented a boat on our own. Both outings provided great views of birds, alligators and vistas across the landscape. We left the area relaxed and ready for a new adventure!
