Easy hike in the swamp. Saw lots of birds and alligators

We drove 1hr 45mins and it wasn't worth the drive. We didn't like it at all I don't know why it on altrails there is no trails. plus it cost to much to get in. I understand that it non profit organization but it can be a cheaper I'm sure. We wouldn't go back there again.

Liked it. Worth the price of admission. Wish it was a little longer of a walk but still very good and well maintained.

I love this park. I hike out to the lookout tower is awesome, you can see for miles around from the top. So many sights so much history.

Been here more than a dozen times and have canoed every trail that has been opened since my first visit in 1992. My wife and kids were hesitant at first, but now if we miss a year they start asking when will we go back?

Fantastic walk on a boardwalk out into the swamps. Start your hike at the Chesser Homestead and take in what it was like to live near the swamps. From there you can take a .4 mile walk to the boardwalk hike. (We startled a flock of turkeys on this trail). The boardwalk is about .9 miles long and ends at an observation tower overlooking a lake. During our visit we saw eight baby alligators sunning themselves along the boardwalk and two huge ones at the lake. This is a fantastic walk and since it was November we were the only people wandering around the area.

Took a 2 night, 3-day paddling trip in February. Despite the cold and rain, a gorgeous place! The FWS does a good job of marking the trails and the camping platforms are in great shape. The information on the FWS website is out of date though. Many trips are available and many of the day sites are now used as camping platforms.
