We have visited many times and never see large crowds. Several choices for trails. We see some wildlife but have not seen a lot. If you want to get away from the crowds and enjoy nature this is a good choice.

Great place to hike and enjoy nature. There are several trails to explore tho the map is sometimes confusing. I always take guests here to see alligators. It is dog friendly which is the reason we go often. Sitting on the bench watching the eagles...More

Nice place if you like a hike. Trails are really trails between 1 mile to 1 1/2 miles long. Seen some wildlife including gators but it was midday so I am sure they were hunkered down from the heat. Visitor center was nice and cool....More

It is free, But donations are always welcomed. To donate you can give in the main office in the parking area. There is no pressure to give, no set amount. But I am sure every penny helps. :) That is my 2 cents.
