Collier-Seminole State Park is a 7,271-acre park within one of the largest mangrove swamps in the world. There are several hiking trails, or you can rent a canoe to float along the Blackwater River, where you will be sure to see alligators, raptors, wading birds and possibly manatees.
At the entrance to the park, the only remaining “walking dredge” is displayed. This huge piece of equipment was what they used to dredge through the swamp to build the Tamiami Trail (US41).
