This is a walking place but there is a motor tram for those who don't need to linger in places of their interest. During the winter, (Jan) there are no bugs and plenty of gators and birds to photograph. Enjoyed it a lot.

This is really nice place to see gators, snakes, and egrets, herons , etc. The boardwalk and paved pathway can make it easy to view or you can head out across the slough. Warning this can be hot and buggy at times.

Amazing birds and alligators galore. I cannot imagine anyone could travel the Slough and not see unlimited wildlife, flora and fauna. I loved it in the poring rain. I would have to say, must see!

We had a great time. I would recommend a hat, sunscreen, water and snacks. You may not see an alligator, but I would be prepared.

Nice place to see gators, snakes, and egrets, herons and more! The boardwalk and paved pathway make it easy to view... Reliable place for visitors to see gators.

This is a short walk with a ton of wildlife at arms length. Birds, gators. The only downside is that it is incredibly busy.... But still worth it.
