I saw gators, turtles and lots of birds. Tour guide was very good at slowing down and pointing out various animals/birds. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

Great hiking, biking, and even a guided tour if desired. Tons of trails and tons of wildlife from fish, alligators, herons, hawks, and ibis. Very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable park staff who show you all the options of the park.
