We found this wonderful park completely by accident. We dropped someone off north of us and decided to continue our journey north before we had to pick them up. Well we were wonderfully surprised to find this place and spent a good two hours exploring it. We didn’t manage to see everything so make a plan to spend about 3 to 3 1/2 hours here.

Unfortunately, we missed the last boat ride but plan on returning to check it out. They have a wonderful array of animals here including the oldest hippopotamus in north America. Also a couple of wonderful Florida panthers and even an American Bald Eagle. There are many more to see here and the boardwalks and nature views you see around them are wonderful.

They have an great snack stand and gift shop as well. This park is one of the best kept little secrets we have found in Florida. But do not take our word for it. Check it out yourself.
