Typical view [?]
NOTE: Fiarly shaded - odd for mangroves.
NOTE: Shells - almost paved.

Not much to it though it is a national park. A short walk through mostly mangroves and a little bit of very protected (ie zero wave) beach. If you're especially sensitive to the history of native americans it might piss you off.
Not much. Mangrove swamps aren't great for birds. You could copy and paste this for all these kinds of places: Gulls, pelicans, anhinga/cormorants in the water and on signs. Not really room for shore birds here. Herons/egrets etc around mangrove areas. I would not come here for birds - 100s of other places are the same or better.
You might see crabs on the beach or a racoon. So nothing basically.
Bathrooms and gift shop. Gas stations etc are like 10 minute drive.
Use phone. You have to drive through a good bit of residential neigborhoods.
Thanks for the lovely conversation. National parks are always well run =)
20 minutes to visit gift shop and see beach. I doubt you can go slow enough to spend an hour here on the trail.
First full disclosure. I had bad childhood experineces here so I have an extra bad attitude I'm trying to keep down.
It's pretty underwhelming for a national park. Not run badly it's just very small and not much to it. It's where the Spanish Conquistador Hernando Desoto landed around 1540. There's a short mangrove swamp trail, a gift shop, and a mock village.
