Hidden gem out in the middle of nowhere. Tons of wildlife. It is a nature photographer's dream. While it is a working cattle ranch, it is a wildlife management area and hunting is allowed. I've never encountered any issue with the hunting while out photographing. You can drive the loop or get out and hike, just be mindful of the gates so the cattle don't escape.

Dinner Island Ranch WMA is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited in Florida. For wildlife and birding it is the best in the Everglades. The best way of getting there is by taking I75 to Snake Road and then you are driving northwest into Hendry County. My main point for this review is that you get to see wildlife and impressive birds up close. There are loads of Crested Caracara (falcons), swallow tailed kites (from late March/early April to August only), red-shouldered hawks, eastern meadowlarks, northern bobwhites, barred owls, lots of deer, turkeys and cattle and if you are lucky, you can even see a Florida panther or bobcat. It is definitely worth the trip if you are into wildlife and wildlife photography up close. Only bathroom is at the entrance. Have plenty of food an water and full tank of gas since the property is huge. Also beware of hunting season. Look on the website so that you can beware of the times that they allow hunting. There is also an option for camping on the site. I didn't see that area, but I'm sure that you can find more information on their website.
