The Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park is a swamp forest about 20 miles long by five miles wide. The Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk is a 1.2-mile boardwalk into the forest. You won’t have much chance for landscape photography in this heavily wooded area. However, you are sure to see alligators, wading birds, snakes, turtles and maybe even deer, wild turkeys and black bears.
