This was my forth visit to Billy Swamp and did not disappoint again. This time we took my Grandad (in his 80's) and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We did both the airboat and swamp buggy tours and saw lots of wildlife and learn...More

Nice park. Have caged animals and plenty of gators. Nice gator show. Visit the Sweetwater Café there. They have primitive huts you can stay in. Good air boat ride with lots to see.

As far as I know, no. The swamp buggy had all age groups on it when we went.

Just get there early I think at 9 and go into shop to get on the list. You can see animals while you wait. And call to be sure there's one at 10;30 or 10 am. Leave 25 minutes minimum to drive into the place off I 75.
