Avon Park Air Force Range is a 106,000 acre military training facility located in Polk and Highlands Counties, in South-Central Florida. The Fish, Wildlife, and Outdoor Recreation Program works in coordination with the Air Force to provide recreational opportunities to the public and military personnel.
As the largest wildlife management area in the southwest region of Florida, APAFR is known as a world-class destination for hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, birding and outdoor educational opportunities for all ages.
Visiting public can be given a pass at the front gate and proceed straight down the road about one mile to the Outdoor Recreation Office, or "Building 600". It looks like a log cabin.
