What a great place! The visitor's center is full of interesting things with a lookout toward an osprey nest. The scenic auto drive is really cool. Nice and relaxing. Boardwalk hike is also worthwhile.

Nice stop on our way North. The visitor center has great displays and information. The driving tour is self guided. We saw many migratory birds on their way South for the winter. Beautiful fall colors and a great way to break up a long drive...More

Seney is a great place for a drive or a bike (we've done both) and now it's on the top of our list for a spring day hike! The park is closed to vehicles until May 15 but we thought we'd try some hiking. Well,...More

The wildlife preserve is interesting and fun for the whole family. There is a 7 & 81/2 mile one-way loop you can drive. Do leave yourself enough time as you are only moving at 10-15 miles per hour. There are lots of birds, ducks, swans,...More
