Chassahowitzka - Planning Your Visit

Helpful Information

tiger swallowtail butterfly

In the fall and winter, you can hunt for white-tailed deer, feral hogs and small game species on Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area. There are also spring turkey quota hunts during March and April. The best times to hike or bike are on non-hunting days in the fall through the spring.

Throughout the year, you can take a drive through the sandhill, scrub and flatwoods on several miles of improved roads. Some roads also traverse portions of the hardwood swamp. In the fall, the sandhills are ablaze with wildflowers scattered among green palmettos and wispy, golden native grasses. The scenery during the summer months is beautiful, as well. However, the heat, humidity and mosquitoes can be intense.
