We went to oak hammock marsh really nice day, so we started exploring the trails and you had to be very careful where you walk. Lots of gopher holes on paths. After realizing that most people just sit at the end and watch the birds coming in. Nice for young children to explore and have an insight of the way... More

This is a great place to do some hiking, bird watching and just learning about and seeing nature. They have numerous programs throughout the day and even a guided canoe hike for a small fee. If you want to canoe alone they have canoe rentals as well. Very enjoyable. They have an inside area with lots of displays as well... More

We had a wonderful time at Oak Hammock Marsh. The marsh is beautiful, and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. They told us exactly which trails would be most suitable for children (4 and 9) and where we could see some adorable ground squirrels. My children also loved the exhibits. We stayed for nearly 4 hours, and my children... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to walk the trails and paths with my camera. There were several large guided tours going on, even though it was the middle of the week. The abundance of... More
