Myakka River State Park
Take the boat tour, call ahead what time is best to see the most alligators (it depends on the wheather) Watch the Videos in the little Museum right after the entrance on the left, very interesting Florida History
Experience the natural beauty of Florida thru hiking trails, birding views and a unique guided boat tour of our Myakka Lakes. You’re sure to see alligators in their natural habitat. Beautiful sunsets too!
If you're a nature lover you'll enjoy the trails of this park, the canopy walk, the alligators and a boat ride if you wish.
The majestic Myakka River flows through 58 square miles of one of Florida’s oldest and largest parks.
If you want to see alligators in their natural habitat, this is the place. Lots to do and see. Take a lunch and enjoy a full day.
This is a beautiful place, so peaceful and serene!! You will most definitely see alligators in their natural habitat and have several special bird watching opportunities. There are kayaks and bikes for rent as well as air boat tours and a great gift shop where you can taste gator meat if you want!
A lovely taste of Florida. Great for biking, hiking and seeing alligators.
