Hungryland Slough Natural Area

The Hungryland Wildlife and Environmental Area was acquired by the state in the mid to late 1990’s and this area contains 16,645 acres. The area includes some of the highest quality, relatively undisturbed pine flatwoods remaining in south Florida. Here you can camp, hike, or bike along the Old Jupiter-Indiantown Road, participate in hunts for deer, hog, and small game, and fish for largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, and warmouth. In the summer and fall the rare orange and yellow Catesby lily blooms in the moist flatwoods and prairies.

“Every day, many of us go about our daily activities unaware of the treasures that exist in our own backyard. The Old Jupiter-Indiantown Road . . . still remains generally as it was in the early years of the settlement of south Florida.” – Old Jupiter-Indiantown Road Trail Feasibility Study, 1993
