Gator Creek Reserve

Gator Creek Reserve is situated on 2,700 acres and has 5 miles of well-established trails taking hikers through marshes, cypress swamps and hardwood forests.

Hiking and Birding

Gator Creek Reserve is in North Lakeland. Because of it’s close proximity to the Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve, the Reserve is enjoyed by birders.  Almost all of the birds found in the Green Swamp can also be found at Gator Creek. This includes summer tanager and Carolina chickadee.

Hikers and runners may also see various snakes and alligators.
