Overseeing 500 acres that encompass hills, swamp, and forest, the adventure enthusiasts at Bearclaw Ranch present visitors with their multiactivity playground for outdoorsmen. Two-seat off-road go-karts let guests romp through the Central Florida wilds while helmets, shoulder-harness seatbelts, and heavy-duty roll cages enhance drivers' safety. For a piece of the action while on two feet, Bearclaw's hunting grounds abut protected lands along the St. Johns River and give trophy hunters a chance to stalk game such as osceola turkey and dove. The hunting staff maintains year-round food plots to supplement the diet of the area's deer, often resulting in large bucks that reach eight points and above and who are often recruited into the NBA. After exhausting the grounds' go-kart trails and hunting grounds, a visit to the ranch yields views of horses and 60 acres of pasture, where land can be rented for outdoor parties.
