My girlfriend and I arrived here Feb.28 2013 around 8am. It was cloudy and in the low to mid 60's for a temp. We spoke with a volunteer on where we might see some gators, he was very helpful and told us we might not see any with how cold it was. He was correct.
We walked the whole park which is about 3 miles, maybe a little bit over 3. We seen fish in the pond, one huge owl, one osprey. We started out slow and quiet hoping to see everything we could .
Multiple signs are located all over for info on what certain plants and trees are named, animals and reptiles as well.
Make sure you bring BUG SPRAY...all over SW Florida in February and March i havent encountered mosquitoes before. They werent all in your face they mainly always went to your legs, my girlfriend and I ended up with 60-70 annoying bites between us both.
Im told best time to see gators or other creatures is when its sunny and warm, I will try this again another year when weather is better.
