Located in the heart of the Florida Nature Coast, just up the road from Sugarmill Woods, is a little old town called Homosassa. Homosassa sits on the south bank of the Homosassa River. The beauty and abundant wildlife of this river is stunning. The commercial fishing industry has all but disappeared from the area while the recreational fishing is alive and well. Experience old Florida and fish the fabled grounds of Homosassa, Crystal River, and The Gulf of Mexico. For the best possible experience, hire a professional fishing guide to make your trip enjoyable and rewarding.
Inland lakes and rivers abound within a very few minutes from Sugarmill Woods. We have the 19,000-acre Tsala Apopka chain of lakes near Inverness. This freshwater system is home to an abundance of freshwater species, and is a world-renowned largemouth bass fishery. Shellcracker, Bluegill, Bream, Redear, Sunfish you name them, we have them. We can’t forget the Withlacoochee River forming the eastern border of Citrus County which is another unforgettable freshwater fishing paradise.
Just 30 minutes from Sugarmill Woods is the famous Withlacoochee State Trail. It is a wide, asphalt-paved trail, 46 miles long that follows much of the course of the Withlacoochee River. The trail is built on the former right-of-way of an abandoned railroad track and spans several counties as it traverses mile after mile of natural lands and riverbanks. Ideal for bicycle touring, the trail also attracts walkers and roller blade enthusiasts.
As a hiker, you will enjoy a wide range of choices in Citrus County. You can hike through sand hills, scrub, hardwood hammock, hydric swamp, prairie, and marsh. Many trails go through several or all of these land types.
Right in Sugarmill Wood’s back yard is the most remote coastal region north of the Everglades for paddlers. Paddlers will enjoy unmarred vistas of salt marsh, tree islands, and winding tidal creeks. Small coastal trail towns with rich histories add a cultural flavor. In winter, manatees abound in King's Bay. River trails in the region include the Steinhatchee, Withlacoochee South, Homosassa, Chassahowitzka, Barge Canal, Weeki Wachi and Pithlachascotee.
Not only do the close by waters of Sugarmill Woods provide sightseeing paddling if you combine the action of fishing with the pleasure of paddling, you get kayak fishing, one of the Nature Coast’s most memorable aquatic activities. Kayak fishing allows you to paddle into grassy flats and shallow coastal areas that hold reds, trout, and snook. A valuable resource for area kayak fishing is: http://fishingkayaks.us.
