Lake Wales

Sitting atop the ancient dunes of the Lake Wales Ridge, the Lake Wales – Frostproof area in southern Polk County is rich with outdoor recreation opportunities. Given the mix of state parks, county natural lands, wildlife management areas and state forests – plus The Nature Conservancy’s grand Tiger Creek Preserve – it’s no wonder that protection of this biologically fragile region means plenty of places to explore.
