Let's meet up at 8am at the Park! Entrance fee is $7 per adult without a State Park pass.
We'll park at 40 Acre Lake parking area, which is the first parking area on the left after you enter the park.

You can make your way through the Spillway Trail, Elm Lake, Horseshoe Lake, and Big Creek Loop. This will be a great opportunity to see alligators, turtles, bull frogs, snakes, and tons of water fowl such as whistling ducks, egrets, herons, ibis, and others. There is also a Nature Center that opens at 9 am and the George Observatory is open at 3pm.
You'll want to bring water/gatorade, snacks, camera, sun screen, bug spray, hats and comfy shoes. For those who are adventuresome, the park gates do open at 7am, but we'll meet as a group at 8m.
