Saw many ducks, the weather was not the best because of the wind, but it is worth the trip. The facilities are excellent and easy-to-use. The walking paths are well marked and maintained.

We had FABULOUS bird tour guides and they were able to point out several birds we would have missed. Highly recommend going on this tour with a guide. Park is very clean, and full of all kinds of birds and wildlife.

We went to Estero Llano Grand SP to watch birds and joined a guided excursion with Tom and Connie. The park is very well maintained with several great trails. Eastern screech owl was a real treat))

There's a beautiful pond full of ducks for viewing just off the deck at the visitor center. There are nice walking trails that pass by other ponds and different habitats for birds and other wildlife, and feeding stations that attract Valley favorites and occasional rarities....More

Great place to return to nature! The alligators there have existed in the area for many years. I remember visiting the area back in the early 80's and discovering that there were alligators in the wild out there!

It was okay. Walked around but almost no animals or anything other than bushes and trees around. Wish there was more to look at.

This is now a World Birding Association site. Nice setting and a good place to watch birds, butterflies and dragonflies.

There is a daily entrance fee of $5 per person. If you plan to visit several times, or go to other state parks, you can buy a yearly pass for $70, which admits the cardholder and at least one other person.
