I call it a pleasant stroll as that is the top speed anyone should be at to enjoy Mother nature. The boardwalks, for the most parts have been repaired. There is one small area not repaired. This time of year, the rainy season, is good...More

Great birding, a beautiful setting, well kept raised hiking trail , and a wide variety of wildlife makes for a great day trip. Best in non-summer months.

We walked the boardwalk through the swamp and it was so peaceful and beautiful, the walk takes about 3 hours, unfortunately we did not see any alligators, but we did see a lot of beautiful birds,butterflies and caterpillars.

This was our first trip to SW Florida, and we wanted to experience swamp habitat as much as we could. The Corkscrew was on our list, and we found it to be beautiful and interesting. The guide booklet we purchased was very helpful in teaching...More

I thought this was awesome! Pleasant boardwalk, good for a nature walk that isn't difficult but takes longer than 10 minutes. Will be revisiting :). We saw lots of baby alligators and snakes, different terrain and wonderful seclusion from city sounds/smells.

The Corkscrew Swamp sanctuary has a sturdy boardwalk that leads you through either a long trail (about 2 hour walk) or a "short cut" trail (about an hour depending on your pace). You dont usually encounter many other visitors so if you take your time...More

The sanctuary was built and owned by the Audubon society and from that perspective worth the money it cost for admission which is quite expensive ($17). Glad to support the good work they do. As far as walking though the swamp, it is a nice...More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We wish you had found the experience more satisfying. Admission fees (actually it's $14 for an adult) provide much of the funding that keeps our non-profit in operation. While most visitors are aware of our historic...More

What a great day to see beautiful birds and awe in the cypress trees of awesomeness. The staff at the gift shop are pleasant and I purchased a locally made piece of jewelry.

Thank you for the kind words. We agree that the cypress trees are truly majestic. Thank goodness Audubon had the vision to preserve this wonderful place back in the 1950s, and that local people were working to do so for decades before that.

There were guided tours and very informative; we went at it alone and it was about 2 hours plus, lots to read and see and worth every minute. Plan on about 3 hours, there is so much to take in!
