I enjoyed exploring this area. There was plenty of nature to enjoy and things to see. I was only able to walk about 6 miles around the area nearest to the visitor center, I am sure there is much more to see. I look forward to exploring this area more. If you come to explore I would recommend good walking... More

Great place to take your family. Take your lunch for a picnic. Scenery is awesome. A walk through the trails is very relaxing.

Perfect trail that can keep you occupied for a couple hours. We saw hawks and other birds, a sunbathing alligator and many turtles. There are swinging benches and a few lookouts to take a break and take it all in! Very well maintained.

Several miles of flat trails, some of it boardwalk over swamp areas. You can sign up for guided hikes, but there is no need. There are also 12 large, shallow ponds (originally used as tertiary treatment for wastewater) that attract migrating birds - so it's a noted birding location. The park is closed after dark, and should be, for personal... More

The weather was great so we decided to make an adventure in the park. Good number of trails which let you determine your hike length but still let's you enjoy the beautiful animals and scenery.

I'm a local and have been here many times. Peaceful, tranquil. Take advantage of the nature programs for children and adults. I love that they are constantly striving to bring new features.. To answer a few questions yes, there is a project to cleanse wastewater by filtering it through wetlands. But that's not the odor someone picked up on. That,... More

Beautiful area with many photo ops for nature lovers. Well maintained trails and board walks. Pairs nicely with nearby Savannah Rapids Visitors Center.

Great nature access.... Wonderful place to take pucs. Can see such a wide variety of plants, animals and bugs. Go early morning is one of the best times to walk the trails and see all kinds of birds. Mid day you really don't see to many animals.... Great trails with lakes, ponds and more!

There are many activities, areas to just get lost in nature and exhibits that are very informative for all levels. I especially enjoy the amount of wildlife present.
