Other Information:Enjoy a 90-minute Buggy Tour through the Babcock Ranch and Telegraph Cypress Swamp. Experienced guides offer in-depth descriptions of birds, animals, plants, and the cattle and horses that are raised on the ranch. Visitors will see alligators, and many other animals living in Southwest Florida. All tours are by reservation only.
In the tour area you'll find a small museum featuring Florida history, Babcock operations, and natural history artifacts. The museum itself is actually a movie set used by Warner Brothers in the 1995 film "Just Cause" (starring Sean Connery) that was filmed in part right here on Babcock Ranch.
Our gift shop features items of special interest to Babcock Ranch, the Wilderness Tour and Florida wildlife. The "Country Store" is open before and after tour times.
Picnic Facilities are available year-round. You can bring your own picnic lunch or enjoy a lunch in our Gator Shack Restaurant, which is open seasonally.
