  • My second time at this park. This time most of the park was closed due to a large construction project. Still got to take a 2 mile walk on the trails near the nature center. There is a porta potty by the nature center since the building is closed. If you want a short walk it’s worth a visit. I’ll look forward to the park opening fully. I'm sure it will be a 5 Star review once the construction is completed
  • Awesome and peaceful trail that me and my family hit up. Took a nice slow drive tour, if you have little ones I highly recommend riding, and we have seen at least two gators there that were easily 12 foot long. Not even 30 yards away. It's an amazing display of the beautiful natural environment down here in the low country. Can't wait for it to open back up.
