We took the boat tour and the tram tour. Had a good lunch there too. Both informative.

The nature boat tour was one of the top 3 highlights of our trip to this area. Excellent value for $12

We headed to Myakka State Park after a failed attempt to find parking in Siesta Key and we were not sorry we did. As with many of the state parks in Florida, it is a beautiful ecosystem. If you want to see gators, you will here! The airboat trip was a treat and a bargain at $12.00. There is also a tram ride, walking trails and camping.

Nice campground facility with the exception of two major (to us) drawbacks:
(1) We have Verizon cell phone service but got little or no reception in the campground which became a serious problem when illness struck, and (2) The restroom does not have private dressing area with the shower. There are two shower stalls, but no privacy for dressing. Also, the site next to us had three vehicles, four tents, 16 people and two dogs. The campground hosts nearby didn't seem to mind even though state park regulations do not permit more than 8 persons per campsite. Wildlife viewing is EXCELLENT and the park is large, but I don't think we'll return.
