Perfect for the entire family to see local sea life and nature, better understand the local water and eco issues. All this info and science is presented free and in a fun interactive easy to understand manner for adults and kids alike. They also offer Eco camps for kids and Eco presentations. Be sure to leave a small donation. Enjoy!

The River Center had friendly staff and exhibits that were fun to see. There were energetic turtles, several aquarium of fish and a tank of sea urchins. While they were almost no signs, the staff were available to answer questions and just watching the wildlife was entertaining for a long time.

The LRC is a great place to visit with children. We took our 4 and 7 yo and had a lovely visit. There are a number of large fish tanks with regional wildlife, interactive exhibits and a touch tank for the children to hold some sea creatures. Check the website for activities, such as Thursday morning story time and coffee,... More

Canoeing, camping, paddle boarding. The park has hundreds of acres of well preserved rivers and forest. You can take a boat tour, which is what I did, and go to a remote campground from decades ago. Or you can rent Kayaks, like my wife did, and paddle around the small inlets. Cool to do. Once.

Cypress trees along the banks were magnificent. No gator sightings thank goodness, but we were warned to wath out for. Very small place, but lots of history and artifacts...must see

Liked what they had on display. The staff was very informative and the displays were great. I learned about a couple of species that I was sorely lacking with information on. Wish there was more to see. The site is rather small
