Withlacoochee Gulf Preserve: Hidden Gem of Yankeetown

In March I headed down to Florida to visit my folks. Typically, I’d tie in seeing friends in Orlando and Tampa Bay, but I knew this trip would be different. With Covid still a concern and my parents among the most venerable, I was on the lookout for quiet outdoor areas with no risk of transmission. The Withlacoochee Gulf Preserve fit the bill perfectly.

I stumbled across this hidden gem in the small village of Yankeetown. As I traveled along State Hwy 40 towards the Bird Creek boat ramp, I noticed the small sign for the preserve in front of a dirt road. Luckily, I didn’t blink, or I would have missed it.
