The Chassahowitzka River is a pristine freshwater spring fed tidal river that connects to the Flats on the Gulf of Mexico. It is surrounded by a National Wildlife Refuge and Bird Sanctuary. It is primarily undeveloped except for some camps grouped along the shore about 2 miles down stream accessible by boat only the dense sub tropical forest is home to much Florida wildlife including Black Bear, Deer, Wild Hogs, Bobcat, and Birds like the American Bald Eagle, Osprey, Great blue Heron, Egrets and many more year round residents as well as migratory birds, even a flock of endangered Whooping Cranes. Their cousins the Sand Hill Crane are seen throughout the region, not to mention flocks of smaller birds, Robins and Blackbirds, too many to mention.
