We paid $6 to enter this park. Trams were not running. Paths were invested with bugs and we sprayed down with bug spray. Wait until Winter season for this place. We left after about 10 minutes, nothing to see or do

This place is amazing. This really put into perspective how much of an impact we have made on our planet, as old growth forest appears otherworldly. Definitely worth a trip.

Nice place to go for a slow down. Lots of scenic walking trails. Do the tour and see plenty of gators.

There is a tram ride 54 minutes long into nature. The narration on the tram is very interesting and educational. We've gone 3-4 times and always see alligators, birds in their habitat and other creatures. There are several walking trails. The museum is informative and...More

Just talked with a resource person. The on duty rangers phone number should be posted at the ranger station.
