Welcome to SUMICA

SUMICA is the largest of Polk County's Environmental Lands and an excellent place to take gorgeous nature pictures or ride your bike. Boasting an expanse of pine flatwoods, the land also supports a diversity of marshes and a picturesque oak hammock. If you climb up to the former railroad bed that runs through the SUMICA property and rises 6 feet above the landscape, you'll have a great shaded vantage point of the countryside. This 4,031-acre tract sits on the shores of Lake Weohyakapka.

Fun Fact

At 7,500 acres, Lake Weohyakapka is Polk County's largest body of water and a popular spot for bass fishing. Weohyakapka is a Seminole Indian word meaning "walk in water".
