  • We had no expectations however the boardwalk is a must stop to see all the wildlife. It was amazing at the quality of the wildlife . The center itself was a disappointment with staff not energized...

  • Nice little center. They have NP Passport stamps and the Junior Ranger program. If you have the Junior Ranger booklet from Everglades, it is also for this park - two parks with one program.

  • I had planned a trip out into big cypress to finish off my 8yo daughters spring break strong. I had planned on 14 miles of amazing Florida wilderness and an incredible dad/daughter bonding trip. What I had not planned on was an incredible experience with a ranger at oasis visitor center. Athena Gonzalez made the experience go from incredible to flat out amazing. She took the time to actually talk with my daughter, ask her questions and engage her thoughts about nature and just what we were doing there. She went out of her way to set us off with a picture to start the trip, an amazing app to identify plant species, and a junior ranger program that sparked my daughters imagination and desire for the outdoors. When we returned after our over night trip she yelled out to us as we passed the doors and when we returned inside to finish her ranger program activities she made an impression on my daughter that I know she will never forget. She swore her in as an official junior ranger, stamped and signed her off, and gave her the badge that is a priceless trophy to my daughter. When we walked out of the visitor center the first thing my daughter said was “I want to be a ranger just like her!” I can’t begin to explain the enthusiasm and excitement she’s had ever since the trip and meeting Ranger Gonzalez. All I can say is thank you so much, you made a difference and may have even set a little girl on a path to being a ranger! We need more people like Ranger Gonzalez around, the world would be a much better place for it!
  • Great place to check out! Kids all got to become Jr. Rangers at a new national park. Tons of Gator activity along the walkway and we even saw a huge snake just off the road on our way in! Great wildlife and the Ranger and staff were great!
