I love this place! I’ve seen lots of wildlife from squirrels to bobcat and a few gators in between. Have to keep kids close but that’s a given. Best to visit is early in the day.

Great wildlife viewing. Plenty of birds - owls, hawks, water birds and more. Alligators, wild pigs and otters. Nice place near town to escape and stretch your legs.

No they are not, it is not safe for them because of the many large alligators or for the many birds, baby pigs that they might chase
