We took the boat trip down the Loxahatchee riverbank's red mangroves, pine trees, and ancient cypress, as well as wading birds and even a few osprey. I heard the high pitched calls from high on there tree tops.. We stopped at the old trappers place and it was enlightening. Very unexpected and serene. Over all a great day there.

I agree with Seasoned Traveler1K. We also took the boat trip and with 4 adults and 1 child it was $80 and the "Trapper" area was closed. So on top of paying to get into the park, boat ride and tipping the Captain. It was an expensive few hours. Now I will say it was very relaxing on the boat... More

We took the boat trip ($19 per adult, $12 ages 6-12, under 6 free). I think they should have a family price. We had 3 adults and 4 kids and that made it very pricey. On top of that, there are large signs that the captain works for tips. Also, the day we went "Trappers" (a stop and tour of... More

Few to no signs of the daily rush once you push the rental kayak or canoe off the boat deck and begin to paddle. My camera as companion was reliable to note the riverbank's red mangroves, pine trees, and ancient cypress, as well as wading birds and even a couple of osprey. I heard the high pitched calls of these... More

Nice park to relax the day and night away in. you can see sooo many stars at night. there are not too many activities in the summer but seems like it is a happening park in the winter. they have boat rentals which is nice and a firepit and grill on almost every spot

Went here with my love for a nature walk. We really enjoyed Kitchen Creek hike and then the lookout tower over Hobe Sound. It was beautiful and a nice bit of exercise. We saw beautiful wild life and had a great time. Looked like good camping there.

I went to do some birding and found all kinds of markers and history boards describing how the area was used during WW 2.

Would we stay there again, YES! This is one of the jewels in the Florida State park system. I thin it was under 30/ night. We stayed 3 nights, toured the facility in Jan. 2014. Perfect weather, Great RV sites, Min 30' wide with 50'+ , Big buffer between sites and plenty of parking and roadway to maneuver a big... More

I go to run on the trails throughout the park. The trails are fun to run on through the trees and around the park.

I arrived around 9:30 on a weekday morning with my grandchildren and we were all excited about taking the 11 a.m. Loxahatchee River boat tour. The woman at the gate informed me the 11 a.m. tour was sold out, but that the 1 p.m. tour was still available. I paid the entrance fee and decided to purchase the tickets for... More
