Endless walking trails

Nice boardwalk close to the visitor's center. Multiple trails that take you around the swamp areas. Lots of wildlife to see - birds, alligators, turtles.

This is a neat place for families or people that just want to take a leisurely outdoor walk. You can bring your dogs with you as well, just keep them on a leash. After you park, check out the map and decide where you want to go. There are miles of trails, with cool little bridges and wooden paths. What... More

We went here for Mother's Day and loved it. It made me so happy to see the boys having so much fun on the trails and bridges. They went to school the next day telling the teacher everything they saw: snake, turtles, fish, birds, dragonflies, MUD! We'll definitely go back.

If you've never seen a swamp close up, then this is a fun place to be. It's nicely cared for, there are clear pathways, and lots to see. We went right after a rain so there was some mud, so I'd recommend crummy shoes if you're in similar circumstances.

The lady at the visitors center is awesome! She was friendly and full of information. Don't forget to sign in because that's how they get their funding, its based on the number of visitors.Stop in there with the kiddos if you need a cold drink!

Phinizy Swamp Nature Park is a cool place to visit for a few hours to see the scenery of a swamp. A long wooden bridge/walkway goes over the swamp, putting one right in the middle of the action. Connected to this walkway is a gazebo, giving the chance to sit and chill while admiring the view. Swamp-living birds fly around,... More

We have lived in this area all of our lives and decided today to go to the swamp for the first time. It was a lot of fun and great way to walk off all of the Christmas meals we have eaten. The park has a lot of different trails that you can explore. We saw a lot of birds.... More

During the summer this was gorgeous. The staff was friendly in the visitor center, and the trails were well maintained and interesting. We saw a lot of wildlife (alligator, birds, turtles, etc.) Bring bug spray since there is a lot of tall grass.
