I was fortunate enough to experience the group camping here at Boyd Hill. It's rustic, but that's a big part of the charm. If you have a group, especially kids, and want to experience real Florida, check into the group camping or even just a day here. It's inexpensive and the staff is super friendly and really enjoys teaching young... More

We took the tram tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide was engaging, knowledgeable and seemed to really enjoy teaching us about the park. We saw alligators, tortoises and many birds. We were ages 4 months to 85 and everyone loved it.

There are some bumps in the road and sidewalks, but nothing steep you can't manuever around. The trail is somewhat accessible with boardwalks and flat ground areas to roll over. If you come to gravel, there will be flat... More

I went to observe the birds in particular. Not as good as I had hoped but I did add a couple of species to my Florida visit list. It was quiet when I visited at the end of a Sunday afternoon. Cheap to enter and plenty of free parking.

Friendly helpful staff at the Environmental Center and the rescued raptors area. Beautiful views of St Pete from Lake Maggiore Island. Saw an alligator and a raccoon.

Nice place to escape from the endless development and traffic. This park has safe trails, water birds and nice views. The visitor center staff is very helpful and they have many naturalist talks/walks for those who want a guided experience. A place to just breathe, stroll and relax.

We had come to St. Petersburg to visit friends who love to be outdoors as much as we do. We decided to try to make the most of a gray, cool day in February by exploring. We came upon Weedon Island Preserve, which is quite a gem. The paths through lush areas are easy to navigate even for those who... More
