We usually go n the fall to see the leaves changing. There's a long boardwalk over a marsh w gazebos and sitting areas. The swamp area has some wildlife, but be aware of snakes in the overgrowth. A fun place for quiet outside of the city.

Today was our first time coming to the park to hike. It was really hot out but we had a great time. We even got to see a gator! The forest trails were our favorite as the trees make great cover from the sun and made us feel closer to nature! We will be returning soon!!

Excellent park, with plenty of trails. It's well maintained. The prime attraction was an elevated walkway over a swamp. A swamp might not sound appealing, but it is something you should make the time for.

If You are in Augusta, and finding yourself with nothing to do, Grab your camera and head to Phinizy Swamp Nature Park. Beaver, River Otter, Countless migratory birds, American Alligators, Cottonmouths. This is "the place to go in Augusta"

While doing a project in Augusta everyday I would pass this place going to and from the jobsite. One day was one two many times so I pulled in and loved the place. Big with plenty of water and picnic area. I would definitely return when in the area and share Phinizy Swamp with my wife.

Nice walking trails, good place to go to enjoy the outdoors. Does not cost anything. We took our 2 dogs and walked the trails. Places to sit and rest. Plaques through out telling you about the wildlife. We actually seen a beaver. Would be great for the kids.

Great to take the children for a nature walk. They especially liked the Spanish moss, the boardwalk, and the quiet surroundings.

Made the mistake of visiting around noon in the middle of June. From what I see up until I could not endure the 100 degree heat anymore was quite beautiful and we'll maintained. I look forward to making it back for a day trip

It's a swamp, so it takes some work, but there is a lot of subtle beauty to this place. Great rangers, nice remote location.
