  • One of the best ways to experience and explore Florida as it once was. Beautiful scenery and wildlife. Truly an experience-that I will never forget. Looking forward to coming back again soon.  more »
  • Spent a lovely day on the boardwalk around the lake and through the swamp to see egrets, herons, turtles but no gators (must have been sleeping). Beautiful spring day and so refreshing to be outside.....  more »

  • This place is amazing. Walking the boardwalk looking into the Slough is a thrilling experience. Peek through the trees and look into the water to see a multitude of life. One thing I would say is please be quiet as you walk around. It adds to the whole experience and nuance of being in the middle of nature.
  • If your kids don't behave and can't keep quiet don't bring them! This is an area of nature that needs to be observed in peace and quiet. There's plenty of walking trails for those looking to get exercise so please respect those wanting to enjoy nature in peace and quiet. Another words you brats in America go find something else to do nature doesn't want you around🤫
