This is well worth the $2 per car admission fee. We did a slow walk from the visitor center around the various boardwalks. 800+ year old cyprus trees. Wildlife abounds. We started at the visitor center which is small but recommended.

We took a boardwalk hike looking for critters. It was nicely done with appropriate signs. Birds and lizards were abundant. We finally saw two small alligators from a distance. Admission was $2/car.

Park entrance is 4 or 5 dollars, but worth it if you are spending some time there. It's a big place and has a lot of visitors, a big tourist pull suprisingly.

The walking trails are well maintained. You can see the Hillsborough River, gators and all. Easy entry off Fletcher at the interstate. Modest entry fee.

Alligators were out in the morning. Sunning and getting warm. Saw lots of birds. Great idea using boardwalk to walk thru the woods

What a lovely park! The trails are shady and peaceful. The boardwalk is an easy walk out to the Hillsborough River and the lake where many varieties of birds can be observed. There are tables for picnicking and a playground for the kiddies.

Relaxing atmosphere, great for picnics or BBQs, this is a little gem of a place. Take an afternoon to walk the boardwalk, loads of bird life to see and brightly coloured butterflies. The turtles bathe in the sun while the gators plough the lake. Take...More

There is a nature center there but I don't think they sell post cards there.

When you take the boardwalk, at the beginning, go to the right. When you come to the next split, do not take the right hand split, just keep going straight and follow the boardwalk until you get to the fishing pier at the... More
