Lake Proctor Wilderness Area

920 E State Road 46, Geneva, 32732
(407) 665-2211
Daily, dawn to dusk


Six miles of multi-use trails, as well as views of Lake Proctor await you at this site. The property, which has flatwoods, sandhills, oak hammocks and a hardwood swamp, serves as an important recharge area for the Geneva Bubble (a local aquifer). At the entrance, pick up a brochure complete with descriptions and locations of habitats and a map. As you might expect, the hammocks and flatwoods are good for groups of migrants in fall and spring. Wood Ducks and wading birds, including nesting Sandhill Cranes, frequent the lake. Watch the lake margin for skulking waterbirds like Wilson’s Snipe and Least Bittern hiding in the vegetation. Raptors and winter sparrows like the open grassy area on the powerline easement. Other wildlife species observed here include Red Fox, White-tailed Deer and Florida Worm Lizard (rare). Educational programs are available on weekdays for groups of 10 to 30 people. Call for details.
