Pretty cool place for doing photography lots of real Florida plants and wild life. It was too cold (for Florida standards) to observe any wildlife though. We will go back again

Not much here to see but lily pads. Having traveled all over the country I would not go out of the way to see this venue.

Good horse trails you share with hikers and bikers. Lots of swampy water and great birding and animal siting. Kayak rentals seasonal depending on water levels. Bugs are seasonal too!

We visited over Memorial Day weekend. It was very quiet, luckily for us it seemed like everyone else chose the beach! Stopped in at the visitor's center first, so many wonderful exhibits to enjoy! The volunteers were very friendly. This is mostly a scrub area with a lovely marsh area where canoes are launched. We set up at a covered... More

You have many options when the Education Center is open (which it wasn't on our visit): hiking the flat trails through different areas, kayaking, canoeing, or driving the short portion of the white trail to the boat landing. We chose to ride our bikes but other were horseback riding which looked like much more fun. we entered at the Walton... More

We spent three hours here walking the trails. We discovered a cranes nest with babies. Saw numerous Sandhill cranes, ibis, even an otter! A nature lovers' and shutterbugs' delight! The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We plan to return soon.

Unfortunately the day we went the trail was flooded from rain, so we were limited. The park staff is friendly and knowledgable and ready to answer any question you have. Perfect for picniking, biking and relaxing. Def. a... More

The trails on the north side were essentially off-limits for us due to the heavy rains the day before but we did make it down to the canoe launch area and had a picnic right on the water. The day was sunny and cool and the March winds were blowing very hard. We then made the right decision to drive... More

This beautiful preserve covers a large area north of Walton Road in St. Lucie county. There is a nature/visitor center which is closed Tuesday and Wednesday, numerous walking and hiking trails. We were just there in the beginning of March and for the first tine we saw alot of water in the wetlands--some of the trails are muddy and are... More
