The gift shop is nice. The train ride is ok..I would not go again and waste my money. There isent much to do for the amount of money you have to spend to go. I would have to say that it is 2 thumbs down.

A beautiful, if overpriced nature park where you can see how people lived in the swamp 100 years ago. The boat rides are very much fun as you get up close and personal with the alligators. The guides are informative and helpful. We went in May and thank God for DEET or we would have been devoured by the yellowflies, many on our tour were absolutely miserable from all the bites. We got to know our fellow tourists on the boat well because we were constantly slapping each other on the back to kill them. I would recommend going in the fall, winter, or very early spring.

I didn't have high hopes, because most road side attractions sell themselves big and don't deliver. The park was a nice slice of swamp and Americana and totally worth the visit if you find yourself in the proximity of Waycross, GA. The train ride was so-so though the engineer was chock full of interesting info and tidbits. The boat ride was awesome, both from a natural beauty perspective, and also due to a great guide. The folks that run this park really care about it, which is refreshing!
