The beautiful Myakka River State Park is comprised of 57 square miles of wetlands and features an incredible array of wildlife including alligators, the nine-banded armadillo, roseate spoonbill, and green treefrog, as well as interesting ways to view them. The Myakka Canopy Walkway is suspended 25-feet above ground and allows for exploration from the tree tops of an oak/palm hammock. Or take a cruise on one of the world’s largest airboats gliding across Upper Myakka Lake or discover Old Florida on a tram safari. Here you will find hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Stay longer with camping or cabin rentals noting that in peak season reservations are highly recommended. There is a small vehicle entrance fee and charge for the airboat or tram tour.
