That a welcome center would be on tripadvisor . Anyway, I wasn't expecting much when we stopped here. Used the toilet (they have just one) & ate our picnic lunch at one of the picnic tables.

This is the worst visitor centre I have ever been to. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. There weren't even maps to give bearings. Only one bathroom stall, so a long lineup. The Chamber of Commerce isn't getting value for money with the staff it hired. One star is generous for this place.

Well, we stopped back again this year (5/2013) to say hello to the people running it and there for the past 3 years (2010 - 2012), and much to our disappointment Kathy is no longer there and the place has changed. The person there was still helpful and kind, but certainly not the same atmosphere as before.

Although I had been to the Everglades before, I never miss stopping by here for updated information. The small staff are very informative and give lots of interesting suggestions of what to do and what to see.

The staff here was very helpful, gave us some maps and pointed some good stops for our one-day pass along Tamiami Trail. Very worthwhile

The women inside were so friendly and so helpful...hint, take some time to talk to them instead of barging in spewing out questions. They are very knowledgable about the area and even gave us pointers for down the road. Thanks ladies! Oh and the center is full of maps, pamphlets and souvenirs!

They know everything about everything and are so darned FRIENDLY. Lots of Kitchy stuff around, too, including some Clyde Butcher (the Ansel Adams of Florida) originals. Free restrooms.
