Nice place to see all south Florida habitats from sands to mangrove swamp. I can recomend hiking trail from ranger parking place at the entrance to "mountain" observation tower, about 5 km hike. Lower park trails can be easily flooded, which happened during our visit and we had to return. Boat, kayak rentals are also available for the river -... More

It was too cool out to do anything at this park other than walk around and check it out. It is clear that in warmer weather it would be a fabulous place to go. The river is beautiful and seeing all the options that you can do in a state park is exciting. From horseback riding to kayaking or canoeing... More

Very nice, big park with beautiful canoeing along the river, plenty of turtles, alligators and ospreys. Pricey motor boat ride, better take a canoe or a kayak!

Camped here on our way to another resort. The campground is very clean with full hookups. The bathrooms are spotless and look new. The campsites are large with pea gravel in the camp area. There is not a lot of shade in the campground. There is a nice nature center with videos and environmental info. There are boats you can... More

We arrived here late in the day, too late to really explore the park fully. We saw an owl and a hawk while just driving around. The staff at the Kimball education center were helpful and directed me to a "high interest hike for young children" (my request). We walked along the Loxahatchee and saw the foliage, river, and some... More

Weather wasn't the best we went but still plenty to do. Opted for the boat tour, kinda pricey for what you get in my opinion. However we got to tour trapper Nelsons property which was very interesting.

Most of the staff were unaware that they even were available, it took quite some time to aquire one, and they do not have a brochure with information on what they offerat the park. We vivited the campground while there it is clean and well spaced,... More

One of my favorite parks! We camped here for a week and the campsite had everything we needed- water, outlets, very nice bathrooms with showers. All out neighbors were very respectful and quiet. The park itself had plenty to do- I personally recommend the bike trails! The staff was super friendly and very helpful with any questions we had. Will... More

If you like camping, biking, hiking, canoeing, sightseeing cruises...this park is for you. We went hiking along a trail next to the Loxahatchee River. We could see canoer's and the sightseeing boat, which we plan to take on our next visit.
