Welcome to Peace River Hammock

Peace River Hammock is a beautiful part of the Peace River Corridor of conservation lands that border the meandering Peace River. During your visit, you'll have the opportunity to admire a small section of the spring and the rain-nourished blackwater river that begins in north Polk County and flows more than 100 miles south through seven other counties before ending in the Charlotte Harbor Estuary.

Fun Fact

The Charlotte Harbor Estuary is where salt water from the Gulf of Mexico and fresh water from the Peace River come together.
