We visited the State Park and took the very reasonably priced ($8./adult) one hour river trip. The Guide was excellent and we saw Manatees, alligators, numerous fish and various birds. The boat was well equipped for all ages and comfortable.

Compared to the swamp tour for around 170 bucks, this at 6 Dollars was a steal! And what you see and watch within the 1 hour tour is amazing! Just looks at the fotos - even an alligator mummy and her little one :-))

This park will take you back in time. Very unspoiled and natural. We took the hour long boat trip on the river and saw lots of wildlife. Definitely a must if you are in the area. We saw lots of birds, manatees, ospreys, and the...More

I go here often. This park has something to do for any age. It is great for groups or couples or solo. Great for birdwatching. If you take the boat tour at the right time of year, you'll see many. Red-winged blackbirds, herons, egrets,hawks. It...More
