A wonderful place to visit. Some creatures to see, and wonderful trails to stroll along. Beautiful scenery and great opportunity to take some nice photographs. I've been there twice now and I wouldn't hesitate to go again. Nice to go with a friend and walk and talk along the way. They also offer many various programs, hikes, bird watching, activities...

We visited Mocassin during a stay at Clearwater beach as a break from the beach. The entrance hall has a collection of reptiles and amphibians that the kids loved. Outside there are some injured birds and a butterfly garden all of which are good to view. The trail then meanders through the wild area in the shade so cool enough.... More

Beautiful park has well kept trails through cool Oak hammocks and Cypress swamps. It has an Interpretive Center with displays and Animal Enclosures. Hard to believe it is so close to busy US 19!

Great for kiacking, beautiful streams leading a senic path through over hanging tree and lots of bird wildlife and visable fish in the water. Very relaxing even when we paddled past an alligator sunny on the banks. No charge to use the park and has biking trails in the shade,plenty of parking,bathrooms and picnic tables and grills set up. Well... More

You would never find this park if you weren't looking for it, however it is a half day well spent! The animals at this park are cared for impeccably and are unable to be released back in to the wild due to injuries. They live a very good life here. The park's manager has been here for many, many years... More

Moccasin Lake Nature Park is centrally located in Clearwater, near US 19. Cliff Stevens Disc Golf Park is right next to it. The park has a variety of "residents" which have been injured, mostly birds of prey, and live there where you can see them up close and personal. I've been taking my kids there since they were toddlers -... More

This park is awesome and is tucked away in a very unsuspecting spot in a busy city. Surrounded by a frisbee golf course, and another city park, Mocassin Lake Park is just the spot to enjoy what nature has to offer. There're several birds of prey on display in outdoor aviaries, and handlers there during certain times of the day... More

Lovely free nature trail with few people visiting it. Nice staff who teach you about the birds and wildlife. The trail is covered by many beautiful trees. I just moved here from Colorado so was quite happy about this find!
