  • Can I hunt?
    You can't hunt on our property but We've been told by hunters that we're the best place to put-in to hunt in the Escambia River Wildlife Management Area which contains over 35,000 acres. Duck hunters have told us that we are their "base camp" during the season. There is a brochure describing the hunting rules of the Management Area located on the Florida Fish & Wildlife Web Page.

    I own over 400 acres and a sizable portion of that is classed as wetlands, which are very pretty and lie on the "lake" (bayou) with acres of beautiful Cypress trees.

  • Is it really a lake?
    It's not really a lake. The original Beck's Lake" was west up Big Rock Creek a 1000 feet or more from the current Boat Launch. The earthern dam burst in the early part of the 20th century and now the lake no longer exists. What people today call the lake is really two arms (north & south) of a bayou with a 1/2 mile long channel that runs to the Escambia River. The depth of the bayou is from 6 to over 25 feet deep. This calm, still, deep water provides a perfect area to catch fish or just paddle around.

    There were two brothers, one named Geno. They operated a sawmill on the property on Big Rock Creek which flows from the west to the boat launch area. They are said to be buried somewhere on the property. Also see the answer to the question about the "lake".
