“Very helpful staff and a great visitor center”

Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My son and I stopped in at the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center at the very beginning of our visit to Everglades National Park. It helped us get a "lay of the land" before proceeding into ENP, so we could get information on where we would like to visit during our time in the park. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful in answering our questions. They also gave us useful details that would help our visit to the park, since neither one of us had ever been to ENP before. Overall, it doesn't take long to visit the Coe Visitor Center, but it will help your overall trip to ENP.

We are fans of National Park Visitor Centers. They usually have good descriptive information about the Park as well as informed people at the information desk. This was Center was no different. There were displays of the Everglades and a video (our first stop if we manage it in any National Park is to view the video). This video is OK. Developed by the Discovery Channel it gave information, but didn't seem to have the depth some National Park videos have.

Talked with two Rangers (since we were at the Center twice). The first quite knowledgeable and helpful. The second very high on enthusiasm, but didn't seem to understand my questions. But both were worthwhile.

The center gives you a good overview of the Everglades. The Park rangers take you on guided tours. Going there is free of charge

This a very informative and interesting visitor centre than I recommend to visit before entering the park so you can understand what to visit, timings and buy important things as mosquito repellent and drinks

This is located at the main entrance to the Everglades NP. Small little visitors center but it has a lake that you can view wildlife if you wish. We got our maps and some information to let us know what was going on.
