I found this destination worthwhile, but I was expecting more. The strength is the educational building with indoor exhibits. The exhibits were self-guided with printed explanations at each individual exhibit. I noticed that there were 2 staff members or volunteers who seemed very bored amd sleepy. The spoke only when spoken to. Outside the education building, there is an .8... More

Historic place to visit, beautiful Oaks from long ago and they stood up to Ivan for the most part. Nice place to enjoy on an afternoon, which we did!!!!

Took a break from the Pensacola Beach to stroll thru this parks service area. Lots of flora, very little fauna (that we saw). A pleasant diversion.

A worthwhile stop. To the left of the visitors center there are lots of picnic tables and a restroom with beach views. No dogs allowed on the beach. To the right of the visitor center there is a little walk with informative placards. There is a very good trail off of this walk that goes on for some time (a... More

Checked out the exhibits and looked out at the water. Nice view and saw some egrets and herons. Fine for a quick stop and to add to your "places I have been". Nobody else was there when we stopped by.

We stopped for a quick break and found a gem. Our kids enjoyed the exhibits here and we all learned more about a tree we've always admitted for its beauty. The boardwalk trail was excellent.

This place is wonderful. The beaches, the hiking trails, all just wonderful. The beaches are usually quiet with not much people.

I love to hike and explore all things nature, but I just couldn't get into this place. Lots of scrubby brush...not sure where any of the 'live oaks' were as I didn't see anything. Trails were so so....sandy, but uninteresting.
