Immokalee

Immokalee has seen its share of hunters, trappers, cowmen and missionaries since it was first settled in the late 1800s. Its name means “my home” in the Seminole language, a nod to one of two Indian tribes (the Calusa Indians first occupied the area) that occupied the area. As the largest inland community in Collier County, it has a thriving agriculture industry.

    Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary
    The Corkscrew Swamp is an incredibly magnificent natural attraction. With its cathedral-like old growth cypress forest and abundant resident wildlife, it offers some of the best wildlife and nature viewing and photographic experiences in the world. But when it was established in 1954, it was a remote wilderness, attracting fewer than 10,000 visitors annually in its early years. A 2.25-mile raised boardwalk takes visitors through four distinct environments: a pine upland, a wet prairie, a cypress forest, and a marsh. Interpretive signs along the boardwalk and a field guide and Children's Activity Book available at the admissions desk in the Blair Center allow each visitor to take the self-guided tour. Benches and rain shelters are along the trail. For those who do not wish to walk the full 2.25 miles, an optional trail shortens the walk to one mile. Volunteer naturalists are usually on the boardwalk to answer questions. Allow about 2-3 hours.
