We love the Slough. It feels like old Florida. There's always something to see and it's peaceful and serene. Free with a minimal parking fee. If you love nature you will enjoy it very much.

Easy to find and very interesting if you like nature and swamps. The rest of Ft Meyers is not worth the expense of coming here. I live here and my house is going on the market. There are a lot better places to visit in Florida. To many murders here and a lackadaisical attitude by County Law Enforcement. To many... More

Very nice walk, shady and cool. We went too late, not many animals or birds out. Recommend arriving at open. Well kept and easy walk, helpful and informative volunteers. Saw turtles,anhinga, great blue heron, gar, variety of small birds and anole. Disappointed by noisy teens that felt the need to read the guide out loud. Will go again.

Full boardwalk with guided tours at posted times. Personally, I just enjoy the quiet walk. Parking fee only - no charge if you bicycle or walk in.

A great place for all ages and it's free. If you like outdoor hikes of up to 1.5 miles and through one of a very few original "Florida Jungle" sties remaining, you'll love it.

This is a great walk on a boardwalk thru the slough. Bring your binoculars. If you go just before sunset to the first walkway you can watch the birds fly overhead to the trees across the way. Hundreds of white birds, chirping away and it is an awesome experience!

This is a very easy walk and many opportunities to see wildlife. The docents are knowledgable and often have scopes on intersting items (nests, alligators, etc). Very accessible. A place to visit more than once at different times of the day/year.

Wonderful guided tour through the swamped slough, especially during rainy season. Even had a refreshing swim!
