Took 5 and 6 year olds, loved the nature walks and seeing marine creatures up close. Great views of Fish River, Weeks Bay, easy drive from the beach.
This is a great destination to see more of Baldwin County and to understand the eco system that supports the area.
Small museum, great board walk through the wetlands. You might see a bald eagle on the bay. Learn how important estuaries are for seafood.
The park closes early, and the trails are not very well maintained--buggy, grass is tall, and it's screaming snake/gator country for anyone walking by themselves. We expected a boardwalk, pavement, or something other than what we saw.
If you are a nature lover and the pitcher plants are open, you should visit. It's not something you'll find many other places.
Also offers a nearby pitcher plant bog which is best in April and October. Weeks Bay offers nice trails, peace and quiet, small museum. Part of the National Estuary System. Very importnat habitat. Look for eagles, ospreys, pelicans and more.
