If you go here be sure to check out the Palmetto Interpretive Trail. It's a very short trail but you feel like you're walking through the time of the dinosaurs.

Great park to see handy work of the CCC, aside from being a lush and tropical adventure. We were there in the spring, when it was rainy and overcast. The park was green and lively, even the water was covered in either tiny water plants or algae? it was beautiful, whatever it was. Several hiking trails, fishing and camping ( of course). Look out for dinosaurs.... or snakes!

The road just outside the park, already a great indication of what is found inside. One of the cool CCC structures. I half expect to see Chris Pratt training vicious raptors.... Loved the various boardwalks, makes for a fun hike with kiddos.
