“Love the park and love the shooting range!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

This is old Florida before air conditioning! Lots of sights and sounds you can't forget. Fishing lake is great and the shooting range is clean, well maintained, policed and safe. Cool place to spend some time while in the Punta Gorda area.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

This is a great place to relax and enjoy nature. There is also a shooting range that is wonderful. The roads are paved and unpaved. It would be a great place to ride a bicycle. The cost is minimal and well worth it.

“Good Range for Shooting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Very nice range for shooting. Reasonable price. Nice ponds to fish as well. Excellent off of Tucker's Grade Road south of Punta Gorda.

“Great Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We have visited Babcock Ranch and taken their tour at least 3 other times. We have taken the tour at different times of the day and found the first tour brings more opportunity to see the wildlife. The guides are always informative and we have learned something "new" about the ranch and its surroundings from each guide. Our reason for having gone so many times is that we think it is a great place to bring our "visitors" as it gives them an overview of what Florida has to offer as far as the ecology and the flora and fauna found in this state. It would be very difficult for someone with a disability to take part in the tour and that could be improved upon. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
