Marshall Hampton Reserve
The Marshall Hampton Reserve was acquired by the District in 2008. The Polk County Environmental Lands Program entered into a management agreement with the District in 2010 to oversee the management of the property.
The acquisition of this property protected a significant amount of shoreline and floodplain swamp on the edge of Lake Hancock. Lake Hancock is often referred to as the headwaters of the Peace River.
At times the property can be extremely wet, often flooding entire portions of the property. Even some of the hammock areas will hold a significant amount of water for short periods. Visitors have a couple of multiuse trail options to explore the Marshall Hampton Reserve.
