If you're a bird watcher or just like being out in nature this is one of the best spots around. Drive around the loop, or ride a bicycle if you prefer. Nice scenery, various birds, and alligators too.... more »
Very pretty place . Lots of birds wild life. The only negative was that one of the platforms tower was damaged. Otherwise the park was very well maintained. We enjoyed looking at the animals and the seeney. A group of tourist went there with children and they were making a lot of noise. If they didn't have any appreciation for the place, they should stay in a hotel. It's too bad that people from other states are coming to Florida, and don't appreciate the beauty of the wildlife. I hope that people don't destroy the state, building stupid hotels and expensive houses that nobody cares about, and damage the animals natural habitat.
One of the better places to experience wildlife. Me being a wildlife photographer, love this place as there is so much life here. I have spotted alligators, great blue heron, little blue heron, tricolor heron, great egret, cattle egret, rosette spoonbill, ospreys, anhinga and many more. The species were very active when I went to the park at around 10am. You can try reaching there a bit more earlier in the day to view more activities.
