Today, the St. Johns River Water Management District re-opened several of their lands and all the navigational locks.
These properties include:
While some activities may be limited, our properties have many recreational opportunities to offer, including hiking, birding, horseback riding, fishing, and more.
Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive will remain closed due to a downed powerline at the exit and high-water levels throughout the drive.
Staff will continue to reassess these properties and re-open them as soon as they are safe for visitors.
