NEW Hours, Tours, and More in Store for '23-24 Season

From December 16 through April 30, visiting hours are extended until 5 p.m.

Whatever the season, there’s no shortage of fun at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. New this fall are BYO Bicycle Backcountry Bike Tours, taking you through a variety of habitats in the backcountry on an eight-mile trek, as well as Beginner Swamp Walks, where you’ll see parts of the swamp typically hidden from the public as you wade through knee-deep water.

From December 16 to April 30, the Blair Visitor Center and boardwalk will stay open until 5 p.m., with the last admission at 3 p.m. Also beginning in December, the Cypress Café will be open with limited hours Wednesdays through Sundays until the end of April. Visitors will enjoy the aroma of freshly baked cookies while shopping or relaxing in the Center. Get admission tickets. 

With our new extended hours, there’s never been a better time to become a Corkscrew Member and take advantage of member-exclusive benefits!
