Fantastic walk on a boardwalk out into the swamps. Start your hike at the Chesser Homestead and take in what it was like to live near the swamps. From there you can take a .4 mile walk to the boardwalk hike. (We startled a flock of turkeys on this trail). The boardwalk is about .9 miles long and ends at an observation tower overlooking a lake. During our visit we saw eight baby alligators sunning themselves along the boardwalk and two huge ones at the lake. This is a fantastic walk and since it was November we were the only people wandering around the area.

Took a 2 night, 3-day paddling trip in February. Despite the cold and rain, a gorgeous place! The FWS does a good job of marking the trails and the camping platforms are in great shape. The information on the FWS website is out of date though. Many trips are available and many of the day sites are now used as camping platforms.
