This park is on the right (north) side of Rt.41 a few miles east of the Rt. 29 intersection. You have to park and walk the path and boardwalk about a quarter of a mile to a large gator hole. I have visited this park numerous time and each visit is different.
Late winter and early spring seems to be a good time to see lots of birds and a couple of gators. This trip I made two visits and each was different. First time there were a lot more birds including several wood storks, blue and night herons and more. Second trip there were mostly Ibis and a few Egrets. Along the boardwalk there is an active eagles nest with on fledgling. We were able to watch it as it spread id wings practicing to leave the nest. We also saw the parents bringing food to the nest.
Definitely worth the visit but don't be too disappointed if you get there and there aren't many birds. Try going back at another time of day.
Janes scenic drive is in another area several miles away. It is a crap shoot for wildlife long, sandy, bumpy road.
