They are really attracted to small animals so if you have a dog running around your camp then be careful and keep them away from the water. I did a summer internship down in Okeefeenokee NWR back when I was in college (way back). They were everywhere. A five foot gator is hard to hold with two people. I see plenty around SC too. But, they are pretty shy of people because they are hunted some. Don't mess with their nests or they can be aggressive. There is a little grunting noise the babies make and it's easy to duplicate if you really want to attract them, they will come.

Thanks for the insight!

Gators are really shy and cool if you respect them. Sometimes people upset a warm one and pay for it. Gators are very welcome in my campsite.

The crocs are the ones you need to watch out for.

Before you think this is crazy, note the unusual clarity of the water:
