Public Recreation

Recreational activities on the range include hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, and wildlife viewing.  The public is permitted to participate in these activities as military use allows.  The Avon Park Air Force Range is a popular recreation destination in central Florida.  It is considered a premier hunting location for the Osceola sub-species of the Wild Turkey.  A portion of the Florida Scenic Trail passes through the Range, and the Air Force has partnered with the US Forest Service and the Florida Trail Association to maintain the trail.  The Air Force charges a fee for recreational activities, and funds received are used to support the program.  Further information is available at www.avonparkafr.net.
