This is a very good area for biking. I saw deer and a bobcat as well as alligators. I didn’t need any bug spray at all during my ride and I rode around the ponds and down the sandy side roads.

So much wildlife! We saw alligators, wood storks, armadillo, and turkey. A really memorable trip. Not all the trails are well marked and there are many service trails, so at times this hike was confusing even with the map. Even so, this trail is a must see.

Harris neck State park is a great place to go hiking, biking and running. I enjoyed seeing the wildlife around Woody pond trail. I will recommend this place is beautiful and relaxing.

I had no idea what to expect here as I tacked this on between mountain hikes and a beach trip. Appropriately named since I saw plenty of wildlife. The alligators were well represented. Two in fact were sunning on the loop passed the pond which made me retreat and a chorus of growling in the lake. It was memorable.

Seemed like there was a lot more that I didn’t even do but I saw so much myself. Would like to go back.

The walk was all level so pretty easy on the legs and the trails were maintained. Signing wasn’t great so download a map or get one from wildlife station. Bring some bug spray. I was in the fall so it wasn’t too bad but still some bugs.

It's a good day hike spot. There are many little trails so it's nice to be able to pick how far you want to go by combining some of them. Some of the trails aren't marked clearly and there are many service trails, so keep your map close and your head thinking and you'll be fine.

Several trails, dirt and paved, all great for easy bicycle riding or walking. Some trails more scenic than others. Located about 13 small alligators in the distance, several types of birds, trees, flowers,and stopped counting after 200 butterflies. Very scenic, always something nice to look at. Bring your camera, and your sense of adventure. Remember, it is all up to you to have a good time. Area is loaded with incredible history. Great places (not all) to let the kids run & explore with adult supervision. We took our 6 yr old, and he did great. Good idea- bring binocullars with flower and bird books to identify your findings along the way. Take only pictures, leave only footprints. Please keep our parks litter free.

Great spot for birding, hiking and/or biking. Wood storks, herons, egrets, warblers, painted bunting, grebes, coots, and other migratory birds and ducks find the ponds and wooded areas perfect for shelter and nurture. Home, too, for alligators and turtles. Trails are flat and groomed. Small nature/visitor center on property. Restrooms available at center. Various trails crisscross the area, most leading to wildlife viewing areas.
