Alligator Alley, Summerdale

#10 of 76 in Wildlife in Alabama
Must see · Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
Start your guided adventure with a walk to the elevated viewing platform, where you can see over 450 alligators from hatchlings to mature adults, relaxing, sunbathing, courting and nesting. After a breath taking view, continue your adventure with a nature walk on the elevated boardwalk and see alligators in their natural habitat along with other natural inhabitants such as turtles, ospreys, owls and bull frogs only a couple feet away!

Feed them. Hold them.

Our expert staff members are always happy to chat with you and answer anything you ever wanted to know about gators!

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, be sure you’re here during feeding times. Want to feed them yourself? Grab some alligator chow and we’ll let you be the master! But don’t worry, we won’t just throw you to the gators – we’ll be there to give instruction and supervise, of course.

  • This place is awesome. What a fun adventure for the family. You get to see alligators up close and personal in their natural habitat. It's fun to feed them as well. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They truly enjoy their work and interacting with patrons. They have a true interest in patrons learning about the animals. They genuinely care for the animals.
  • Pretty awesome place at a good price. Affordable for the whole family. If you have small children make sure to get tokens for the little excavator ride. Wear your walking shoes and a little bug spray wouldn't hurt.
