“Interesting and free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

A short distance from the overseas highway. My hats off to the people who constructed this. Make sure you see it. It probably won't be around forever, as the elements seem to be taking their toll on the structure.

“Amazing”

This is a short visit place but soooo amazing. This bat house is totally awesome. Did not see any bats around but with all the hundreds of slats they could have been there sleeping

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

It was a fun hunt trying to find this tower. if you headed south on us1 is you turn at 17mile marker at the skydive sign. Follow the kinda creepy road and you still come to it. It was huge and neat to see for sure!!! Cant beat it beig free either!!!!

“You haven't seen the keys until you have seen the tower”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

You have heard the story. But you really have to see it to understand it. Tucked away on lower Sugarloaf Key behind the Sugarloaf Lodge is the Perky's Bat Tower. Stop by. Take some photos to post on facebook. There aren't many things in the Keys that are free. This is one of them!
