Helpful Information

Tosohatchee offers year-round opportunities for recreation, although horses are not permitted during periods open to hunting. Small, high-quality hunts for deer and feral hog are held on several weekends in the fall. Turkey hunts are held on three weekends in March and April.

In the fall, winter and spring, temperatures are usually pleasant. These are the best times to see a variety of migratory birds, or hike, bike, horseback ride. Butterfly and plant enthusiasts will appreciate fall and spring wildflowers and the butterflies they attract. Many varieties of ferns, bromeliads and orchids flourish here.
