Have been there wildlife viewing and hunting. Either activity is excellent there with much to see in the thousands of acres put at your disposal. Diversity of wildlife at 3-Lakes is unparalleled.

While viewing the Kenansville area with Audubon Society of the Everglades, we drove through Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area. It was a cold and windy day so we didn't see many small warblers and did see a few feral hogs and around 4 or 5 bald eagles flying over Lake Jackson which is a beautiful lake. The roads are unpaved... More

I love Three Lakes! It is absolutely beautiful! Lots of wildlife- birds (INCLUDING EAGLES), alligators, and deer! Its a great place to bring your family, go on a date, or even hike alone.

I visited on November 18, late in the season for wildlflowers, on a day with poor lighting for photography. One of the better ways to get an idea of its layout is to use Google maps or a similar service with a smart phone. The unpaved roads are mostly stabilized with limestone, and are kept groomed, so they're safe for... More

I discovered this area while taking an airboat ride on Lake Jackson. I liked the various aspects of land area and it's history. Three lakes are contained here-Lake Jackson, Lake Marian, and Lake Kissimmee. It also contains one of the largest dry prairies remaining in the US. This area preserves this prairie. The roads in the area are both paved... More

This is a large area of almost 60,000 acres. There was a self pay box for $3.00 per person. On the way we went down Joe Overstreet Road. This road... More
