This park is an oasis in the midst of Ft. Lauderdale. There’s hiking, kayaking, beach access, and even a nice little restaurant on premises. There’s some noise of course, but it’s still lovely. The kayaking trail in the lake is short but nice for a quick paddle. Lots of turtles and fish visible in the water. I wouldn’t travel far to visit, but come here often as it’s close to home. There’s camping overlooking the intercoastal waterway, but the sites are wide open with no privacy next to the access road. Get there early as parking fills up quickly during peak times.
