Fodor's Review

Opportunity to try biking, hiking, camping, and canoeing in Everglades territory makes this 7,000-plus-acre park a prime introduction to this often forbidding mangrove swampland. Of historical interest, a Seminole War blockhouse has been re-created to hold the interpretative center, and one of the "walking dredges"—a towering black machine invented to carve the Tamiami Trail out of the muck—stands silent on grounds amid tropical hardwood forest. Kayaks and canoes can be launched into the Blackwater River here. Bring your own, or rent a canoe from the park by the hour or day. After a lengthy campground closure, upgraded campsites for tents to motor homes now include three restrooms and a laundry room.
