We did a tour on this lake. Very clean in the fact that there was not trash floating around. Beautiful area, moss covered cypress trees, lots of birds. We saw some small gators and a mama gator protecting her nest. Enjoyed the multiple duck blinds.

We didn't see any when we were there. You might call champagne swamp tours and ask them.
