We've been to Naples for twenty years and just discovered this little gem. Very peaceful view of natural areas, with many bird sitings Just a warning - once you start the nature walk, there's no bathroom until you reach the end.

I visited Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in the winter to take pictures. I wasn’t sure what I would see as far as wildlife but knew the plants and views would be worth the trip at any rate. I stopped twice on the road on the way, once for wild turkeys and again for a Sandhill Crane. I made sure to get... More

We took advantage of our time in Naples to visit the Corkscrew Sanctuary with our two children, 7 & 10. Our children were nervous about taking an airboat to see alligators so we thought this would be a good alternative. It was so much better than we had hoped. Within minutes you find yourself back in time, experiencing Florida as... More

A nice walk through nature... Very interesting views ... Get lots of water especially if you plan to walk during summer months ... Very humid and hot ... We didn't see too many animals :( , but still interesting experience .

Although entry was relativley cheap there was a decided lack of wildlife. We deliberately arrived early and spilt into two groups to minimise noise. Between us we saw one snake, a handful of birds, a few spiders and a grasshopper. This was not as advertised and for us ironic as we decided this over an airboat ride as we thought... More

I love this place. Now some tips for our mutual enjoyment. 1. The best chance to see the wildlife you want to see at Corkscrew is in the AM. PERIOD. Unless you want to see the Swallow tail Kites ride the updrafts in the afternoon, when they're here. Most of the wildlife here is trying to get full before the... More

We arrived at 10:00 and due to the rains had high humidity. We saw woodpeckers, raccoons, butterflies, a hawk, an owl, an alligator and lots of anoles. In total we spent 3 hours at the sanctuary and sometime in the future go again, but arrive much earlier!

We came as a family of 4 with mum, dad and 2 teenage daughters. This was a wonderful morning! We walked along the boardwalk in relative shade (for August) and were so surprised at what we saw. You have to go pretty slow and use your eyes and ears. The kids liked looking for poo (scat) because this gave us... More

We went in August and it was very hot in the sun, but in the shade it wasn't so bad. It was a beautiful walk, we didn't see a whole lot of wildlife, but it did not detract from the walk. There was still a lot to look at. The 2.25 mile walk was easy enough. No hills and they... More

My favorite place to visit in season. Somewhat hot in the summer. On a good day a stroll on the boardwalk is a super Florida treat. Observe nature with guides to clue you where to see the delights.
