Loved this place. Bring the binoculars. Only $2 per car to get in. Beautiful board walk through the park. Take your time look in the water for various turtles, fish, birds, alligators, and have even seen a deer and raccoon.

The trails are well marked, it's very clean, the staff are friendly, and there are signs throughout the trail that explain different eco systems. There is also canoe and kayak rentals. The cost was $2 per person for entry into the park when I went.

Quiet due to migration of birds north, but still some remain year around like turtles, alligators and heron. Go in the morning before 9 for best viewing of wildlife.
