We stop by this park every year on our annual trip to the Everglades. The alligators never disappoint! It's right on the highway, easy to park. There are always nice birds and fish too. Definitely stop there!

This is an easy access location where you will see lots of wildlife. From the walkway we saw gators, turtles, fish and many birds. If you drive down the dirt road next to the entrance, you will see even more gators and wild life.

We found out about this by reading a review on Trip Advisor. The review was on the money. We saw alligators, turtles, fish, a black snake, various birds and we had only moved roughly 5 feet from our car. If you want to see Everglades...More

Short (200 feet) boardwalk along parking lot allows you to see gators, birds. Nice, easy accessible way to view gators in natural setting. About a 10 minute stop.

Just about 10 miles from Chocoloksie south on the Tamiani Trail is a little road stop area with water and gators. Turtles, fish, birds nearby. If you did an airboat ride and didn't see any gators, you're likeky to see them here.

We didn't need to go to any animal park to see wildlife. Saw alligators, fish and several species of birds just steps from the parking lot.

short boardwalk off route 41. Rest room in awful shape, my friend got sticky stuff all over her shoes. Lot of alligators, because people are feeding them. Signs worn off, nothing to read. Thought this place was worn down, kind of awful
