Search for the Alligator

The alligators at Merchants Millpond State Park are one of the most asked about creatures we have.  March is a great time to see them on the pond.  This is a canoe program and we will be on the pond for about an hour looking for the wonderful alligators.  We do ask that you register ahead of time and a $7.00 canoe rental fee is required.  For registration and for more information contact park staff at 252 357 1191.
