Great nature with a lot of animals and insects you can spend a whole day here. As I traveled there I saw snakes, alligators, owls, manatees and a lot more. But it isn't that dangerous. I had a great and unforgettable day

It was hot and muggy but such a nice walking trail There was even a gator sunbathing. Little sad that the otter trail was flooded out from the day before.

Awesome park. Went to alligator farm and was a blast. 27 bucks with air boat ride was good deal

Well worth the price of admission! I entered the park at the Homestead entrance. The scenery and wildlife were awe inspiring. Like most National Parks, the rangers were friendly, enthusiastic, and happy to tell you about the best parts of the park. Make time to explore the park if you are in the area and you won’t be disappointed!

Ok, I think this place is probably awesome for some people. There is a lot of plant life and we saw some interesting birds. We saw 8 or 9 alligators. However, it is a lot of the same scenery. It just depends on what you're looking for I think. Definitely no magnificent views or outlooks. I was understanding what the old explorer said when he said Florida was nothing but a swamp full of poisonous reptiles 😊.

Great place to see nature at its best. The only issue is the park really needs to be updated and the boardwalks fixed! Understanding previous hurricanes did damage... it is more than time to put some dollars into freshening up the park. A hidden gem that simply needs to be polished. Great fishing and bird watching!
