We stopped here right before walking the Anhinga Trail and had a great time. We enjoyed our time very much and would recommend a quick stop here to anyone that is visiting Everglades National Park.

Professional, friendly staff, clean bathrooms, the usual souvenirs, and some nice maps of the area. This is a good place to start your tour of the Everglades

This was our first experience participating in a Park Ranger lead program. It was terrific. They provided great bikes with helmets and a souvenir water bottle all for free!!! The Ranger was extremely knowledgeable and took us on a very interesting and easy 2-3 hr. Bike/hike of Long Pine Key Trail.

We stopped here several times during our weeklong stay in the Everglades. The Anhinga and Gumbo Limbo trails are awesome.

We also did the Nike Missle tour, which was so so interesting. You could actually picture how it must have been during the 1960's with the Ranger's detailed story.

The highlight though is the starlight hike with a ranger. This was so fun, and it was so beautiful with a full moon. We had our own alligator show. Bring a flash light and bug spray. Plan on at least an hour.

Also the restrooms are very clean here - thanks!
