If you are into birds, this place is unbelievable! Hawks, ospreys, bald eagles, herons, kingfishers, roseated spoonbills, ibis, cormorants, frigate birds, all in large numbers. You can see the eagles' nests as well! When I hiked here, I saw a rare indigo snake as well, and otters. Just drive into the park, and follow the signs to the scenic drive. This in itself is spectacular, and may be your best recourse if you did not bring Off. The mosquitoes are treacherous. Along this drive, you will see a viewing tower, and a hiking trail. I believe this loop trail is 5 miles long, and it is fantastic.
