District Publishes New, Free Recreation Guide

News Release

QR Codes Added for Most Up-to-Date Property Details

The Southwest Florida Water Management District published its new, free recreational guide highlighting nearly 70 properties. With its new sleeker design, users can scan QR codes to discover specific up-to-date details about each property.

There are thousands of acres of recreational lands throughout the District and access to most of them is free to visitors. The new recreation guides also allow users to take notes, learn about various volunteering opportunities and discover more about the District’s different conservation lands.

With 30 unique campgrounds across the District, including back country, primitive and equestrian-styled sites, making a reservation is also free and simple through the District’s recreation website. In addition, the recreation website features georeferenced maps, which visitors can download to be used with map apps that require no cell service.

Outdoor lovers also can check out the new Water Matters Podcast found on the District’s recreation webpage or major podcast platforms. The podcast features Felicia Nudo, land manager, who discusses what it’s like to experience the recreational side of the great outdoors on District lands.

To download or order the free recreation guide, make a free camping reservation, listen to the podcast, or learn more about the District’s recreational opportunities, visit WaterMatters.org/Recreation.
