The park lives up to it's name, as the trees are magnificent. There are ample opportunities for birding and observing wildlife. The metal "boardwalk" is unique and keeps your feet dry while traversing the swamp. Do not expect to see a lake even though it is shown on the map, as this has become overgrown.
