"Across the unique broad, flat palmetto prairie of Florida, it is
possible to see a cow two miles away,
just as it was a century ago."
- Mark Derr, Some Kind of Paradise
Within an hour's drive of Disney World is the
Kissimmee Prairie, one of the largest remaining expanses of dry
prairie in the United States. A significant portion of the
Kissimmee Prairie has been preserved within the Three Lakes
Wildlife Management Area. Named for the three lakes that border the
area (Lake Kissimmee, Lake Jackson, and Lake Marian), Three Lakes
offers ample opportunities for hunting, fishing, birding, nature
study, hiking, horseback riding, and biking.
Fish for bluegill, redear sunfish, black crappie,
largemouth bass, and catfish, or hunt for the famed Osceola turkey,
wild-hog, or white-tailed deer. Hike along the Florida National
Scenic Trail and enjoy the colorful flush of wildflowers in the
spring and fall.
