This was a unique and amazing experience for a northerner - made all the more interesting because of the time of year and the unseasonably cool temperatures. The wood storks were all huddled in the trees and around them were the iguanas trying to keep...More

The visitor center was closed but the boardwalk was amazing. The only reason I didn’t rate it higher is I wish the visitors center had longer hours.

This was a very different type of park from what I was used to. I am from up North, but I found this very interesting. My granddaughter loves this place!

If you're looking for something different to do this is a nice walk. It goes on for miles and you'll see gators, all different kinds of birds, turtles, among other things. Its a nice relaxing walk

A cool March day so we thought we would take a stroll. Very much enjoyed the birds and water fowl we got to see. Next time we will bring some binoculers which would have been helpful. We will be back.
