Comments: Absolutely beautiful. We weren't able to get to the observation tower (on a Monday when no one else was around) because of sunning alligators in the middle of the trail. It was wonderful. Beautiful park. Kid friendly (areas set aside for children, family picnics even playgrounds). We're planning on bringing the grandkids next month. We saw: alligators, 20+ deer (10 under a tree during a thunderstorm). Armadillo, cottonmouth snake, raccoon, 100's of birds (crane, duck, hawks, eagle, vultures, baby chicks everywhere), a bunch of spiders. Beautiful nature trails.
