In the fall, hunting pressure on Corbett is intense. Hunters can camp at a number of sites and enjoy fishing in semi-circular, stocked manmade ponds. The Hungryland Slough Boardwalk and Trail is located far from the hunting area and is open year-round. Hiking along the 1.2-mile trail is most pleasant in the fall, winter, and spring. In the spring and fall, oak hammocks and cypress swamps along the trail are alive with songs of migratory warblers. During fall and winter, you may see pairs of sandhill cranes that nest on the area. In the summer, the Everglades Youth Conservation Camp External Website offers a host of programs for youth and families. The cooler, drier months of the year are good for camping and wading bird observation.
