Recreational opportunities are available on Caravelle Ranch Wildlife Management Area year-round. In October, there is a supervised youth small game hunt. Paddling on the Ocklawaha River is especially pleasant in the fall when temperatures are lower and scarlet hibiscus are blooming along the banks. Horseback riding, hiking and bicycling are best in the fall and spring on nonhunting days. The Florida National Scenic Trail traverses the area and is open to hikers throughout the year. Spring is an excellent time for birders who may see as many as 15 swallow-tailed kites circling the sky. Fishing on the Ocklawaha is generally best in May and June.
