Springtime's arrival is ushering in exciting
happenings at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area in Glades
County. The swallow-tailed kites are back from South America,
and the campground is getting a facelift.
Campground renovations include construction of a
new camp store and visitor check-in building, repairs to the
bathhouses and a general spruce up. During demolition and
construction of the camp store, traffic will be rerouted through an
interim visitor check-in. Visitors just need to follow all signs
and instructions when entering and exiting the campground.
Workers expect to complete the improvement project in June.
A new concessionaire, Fisheating Creek Outpost,
Inc., is operating at the campground. The Outpost will
continue to offer high quality recreational experiences at the
campground and on the creek. Look for a variety of new interpretive
tours and programs in the near future.
