We visited this park today, I would definitely say it is a hidden gem! Beautiful Florida nature, peaceful, and only a few people we came along. The ranger we came in contact with was so very nice and helpful; He told us about the bat house and helped us out. Overall, a great experience! 😊
What a wonderful experience Ranger Cleveland blessed us with on our visit. Upon arrival, during the hottest part of the day, Ranger ensured that we were educated to the dangers of heat / sun exposure, and he made sure we knew where to locate water and showers. He came out to check on us and provided an on site education of the history and what took place at the locations thruout the park. The trails were well kept and welcoming , information kiosks were full of interesting facts along the trails, the benches and tables were in good condition, and facilities were exceptionally clean and well maintained. It was a beautiful park.
