J.W. Corbett - Planning Your Visit

Helpful Information

Hunting at J.W. Corbett WMA is most prevalent in the fall season. Hunters can camp at a number of sites, and fishing can be enjoyed in the semi-circular, stocked man-made ponds. The Hungryland 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 come alive with the 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 offers a host of programs for youth and families. The cooler, drier months of the year are good for camping and observing wading bird.
