  • Nice wooden boardwalk hike. It is just under a mile to make the loop which goes through swamp with Spanish moss covered trees. Lots of dragonflies on a mid June afternoon. Also some biting flies in a couple of places. Nice lagoon with picnic tables under shady trees. The folks at the museum were super friendly. The museum accepts cash and check only, no credit card accepted.
  • Had a 30 minute movie I recommend watching in movie theater 1st - tells about the lives in the region. Very educational~ Cost was $6.00 a person (we were given a discount for our group 😁) Amazing staff and so friendly! Also recommend walking Nature Trail right behind Museum - we saw at least 6 alligators.
