This is the coolest little park and it is free, which is amazing considering there is a detailed museum and lots of boardwalks and paths that are well maintained.

We had heard of it for years and decided to check it out. The park has many great hiking trails the area near the visitors center has a beach and board walk small but nice. The Visitor center has helpful informative staff and interesting exhibits.

Had a great time on the trail, waded in the water and even caught a tiny fish by hand, had cool educational signs along the trail. Saw amazing birds and huge skink. We packed a picnic lunch and ate after the hike. Was very neat day, was a little warm but was a good way to spend half a day... 更多
When we were recently in the Pensacola area, I took my wife to the Naval Live Oaks Reservation. I grew up in the area and am real familiar with it and the history. Previously it was also a Boy Scout Camp and a Girl Scout Camp. I spent many nights there growing up. Since the feds took it over it... 更多
