  • Great hikes and playground for kids. Lots of great views and wildlife to see. We saw a very large black snake just of one of the boardwalks and lots of smaller snakes sticking their heads out of the water, as well as a plethora of different butterfly species. Kids loved it and we loved watching them love it.
  • Aside from amazing bald eagle watching, this park has great variety. There are both woodland and waterfront trails (some allow biking), and a boardwalk over the swamp. There are restrooms near the playground and at the visitor center. My kids spent have an hour in the visitor center with the displays and activities. There's a boat launch. No snack bar, but plenty of shady picnic tables so pack a lunch.
