Walkway was closed either due to Covid or Hurricane Sally damage but even on the outskirts we saw 2 gators!

Channeling my inner Steve Irwin
Jul 2020
I stopped by Gator Alley Boardwalk on my way to go hiking. I needed to get out and stretch my legs after being in the car for a while. I was excited to see three gators while I was there. One was a little one, maybe a foot and a half long, and he seemed to be a little super model. He swam over and came out of the water and posed for me for about 15 minutes. Then he'd had enough and swam back to the other side of his little area. You are walking basically on the side of the road and under busy highways so there's a lot of noise. It's very easy to get to and worth the quick stop.

If you want to see live gators, this is the place to do it. Parking is easy and the boardwalks go right under the roadways, which is perfect for finding the gators. This stop is certainly worth your while!

See the alligators
Jul 2020 • Family
This is a cool area to stop and have a chance to see some gators. Two were snoozing by the boardwalk. Wear bug spray any time of day to fend off the mammoth mosquitoes. They need to work on the adjacent boardwalk to the one by the main pond. It has holes in it, like the size of feet.

Alligator sightings
Feb 2020
Didn't go there with any expectations but we were all very surprised the alligators were in pens from 1-2- and 3 year olds. Then across the waterway there were 50 to 60 gators 10 to 15 feet long WOW ! A large elevated walkway thru the swamp also revealed many gators in their natural habitat, we all got to hold a three foot 3 year old the under belly is very smooth, a must visit

Alligators less frequent these days.
Feb 2020
There was a time when you could almost always count on seeing alligators as you made a walk along the water. Unfortunately, there has been a war waged on these reptiles in recent years. This includes an annual hunt, but, also, alligators are sometimes labelled as nuisances and agents of government move in, perhaps fearing litigation, and arrange for the alligators to be destroyed and/or hauled away.
The removal of "nuisance alligators" has been going on for years, but it has accelerated in recent years. So, you cannot count on seeing the alligators on a regular basis, as in the past. Also, when they were building the boardwalk connecting to the Hampton Inn, the alligators seemed to flee the area, perhaps bothered by the construction. However, it is still a decent walk and you may see some interesting birds, like herons, egrets, grebes, and so forth. It is one of the few places, locally, that I see anhingas. You can, also, spot turtles, particularly in the early Spring, when they are apt to be basking on logs, etc. to escape the cold water.
I still visit frequently, though I am saddened by the demise of the alligators. There are other problems which have been pointed out by other reviewers; the water is often polluted and smelly, people litter with abandon (a trait common, I learned, to many folks in Alabama and Mississippi), there is significant traffic noise, there is grafitti. However, given all that, it is an easy walk and who knows, you might see an alligator.

Short walk along a ditch and bayou
Jan 2020
Nicely landscaped and inviting looking area. Stopped not knowing what to really expect. Walk starts along a drainage ditch, goes under the roadway to a small bayou.

An OK Little Place
Oct 2019
My wife, daughter and I went to this hoping to see a gator. Unfortunately we didn't. Without seeing one this is totally not worth stopping for, as there really isn't anything to see except a little water under a bridge. Now if we had seen one it would have been totally worth it.
