It had been 20 years since we were on the reservation and it felt so good to see the growth and development of the community. The school was beautiful. Separate preschool and new gymnasium were the icing on the cake for the children. Government offices were beautifully designed and well maintained. Our main destination was the new museum. The life... More

An easy and scenic drive from either the east or west coast of south FL. The reservation has an easy layout that has numerous exhibits and shows all for one admission price. We got the full attraction pass with a coupon from the Big Cypress website. Besides gator wrestling and snake handling they have a swamp buggy ride thru the... More

We only drove through on Interstate 75 and didn't stop to take anything in, so take this "review" with a grain of salt. My wife had never seen an alligator in the wild, so the canal on the north side of the highway made her day (we were traveling west). We saw several alligators, from about 2'- 4'. Granted, it...

I've driven into and through this reservation a few times. I haven't yet been here when the rodeo was going, though I've walked around the rodeo grounds and stadium. The souvenir items in the gift shop are pricey. The homes of the residents here are modest, which belies the fact that the Seminoles essentially started reservation gambling with their bingo...

We attended the 119th anniversary celebration for the Big Cypress Reservation. There were several vendors selling jewelry, tee shirts, and food (primary barbecue). The food was good. The main event was a Montgomery Gentry/Gary Allan concert held in a field near the Junior Rodeo Arena. The staff handled everything well and respected those who had sat in line for several... More

Excellent Museum attractions; Billies Swamp Safari and restaurant and grounds are great. It is nice to see the animals up close.

There is a very nice boardwalk, with native plants and animal life documented on informative signs, and a brief history of the Seminole Indians (the Unconquered), of South Florida.

this place I have visited many times, my only siting of a florida panther is most memorable, was within 5 yards and it quietly slipped away and was gone almost before you knew it... my then 4 year old daughter was thrilled and talked for days about the "pink panther". now there is just development, the 2 lane roads 4-6...

I was there for the Big Cypress Anniversary celebration. Loads of live music! Great food especially the fry bread. A very good array of crafts and entertainers. The bull riding was fun to watch and the arena put you right in the action.
