I live just 10 minutes from this place and have wanted to stop by for years now. This afternoon, my stir-crazy toddler and I finally made an afternoon of it. This is truly a taste of genuine old Florida. An adorable family with four boys own and operate the groves/campsite/swamp tours/country store. The two younger boys showed us a wonderful time. They are full of hilarious facts and are the sweetest things. The store offers vintage soda, local honey, local sauces and marmalades on top of gator meat and boiled peanuts. This is not your typical tourist attraction and you will be roughing it a bit in comparison to the theme parks. This is not something you want to miss out on. Check out their website to see what is in season and make a day of picking your own organic citrus. The also rent kayaks for $5 an hour on their lake where you can also fish for free. The website claims that there are Saturday night bonfires and classic Rock/Bluegrass is performed on their small stage. A true taste of REAL Florida.
