Owner description: Key deer, alligators and fish gather at this watering hole, formerly a limestone quarry, where fresh water is layered over salt water.
Reviewed July 9, 2018

Short walk from parking lot (room for just a few cars). No entrance fee.
Beautiful lake in a former quarry.
We saw turtles, lots of birds and fish, but unfortunately no alligators.

Wasn't expecting this to be a pond. Was expecting a bit more grandeur. Still, a short walk, a little viewing dock to see a turtle in the water. If you are passing by and like nature, make a quick stop, if not, don't drive far for this. 15 mins is all you need here.

Nice short trail around pond. Went to see alligators and ended up seeing two. The trail wasn't to crowded so you could enjoy it.

It's an easy place to get to from the main road. There were lots of animals at the watering hole including alligators, iguanas, many different types of birds, lizards, fish and even deer! It's also really quiet.
