“I love and treat your pet(s) like my own!”
My name is Tarah, I was raised with a dog and volunteered an entire summer at an animal shelter when I was 11 years old. I have worked in animal clinics in the kennel area cross trained as a vet tech and worked in doggie daycares feeding, medicating, playing, bathing and sitting dogs. I have had 3 of my own in the past and miss them dearly! I enjoy being outdoors and the company of a furry friend while exploring. If I am delayed in getting to your fur baby for their walk I stay out a bit longer.

Frostproof, Florida is a small city located on the long stretch of Highway 27, the only main road that takes you from the top to the bottom of the state and back again. This city, approximately 19 miles in area, is the perfect place to go when you want to get away from it all. Frostproof is full of nature and nestled between bigger cities so that you can have access to the things you need while still enjoying the peace and quiet.
If you are over 55 and have an RV, you and Fido can have a short vacation or an extended stay in the local Lakemont Ridge RV Park, or you can choose from one of the AirBnBs available. If you prefer a hotel, the Econo Lodge and Oak Tree Inn in Avon Park are just 12 miles south of you, and both allow multiple pets and big dogs for a small fee. Avon Park is also where you will find the closest two vet clinics in the event of an emergency.
While there are not very many restaurants in town, and none that are pet-friendly, you can find many places in Avon Park, like Little Italy and Market 27, or you can pack a picnic and take Fido for a hike along one of the available trails.
Hickory Lake Estates is a neighborhood in Frostproof where you will be able to take Fido to explore the 57-acre Lake Wales Ancient Scrub System, full of open scrub and lake views. While you stroll along the multiple short loop trails, Fido will have a pawesome time stopping and smelling all of the lichen, scrub morning glory, blazing star, and other unique and colorful plants, and many animals! A lot of these plants and animals are endangered or threatened, so this is definitely an experience you don't want to miss. Be sure to bring lots of water and a picnic lunch so that you can spend the day here. There are picnic shelters, but no other listed facilities, so plan accordingly.
Less than ten miles down the road is Babson Park, home of Crooked Lake Prairie, where you can see Crooked Lake, the second-largest lake in Polk County. This 525-acre lake property is perfect for hiking, fishing, and nature exploring. There are two trails that you can choose from. One takes you to the scenic area of Crooked Lake, and the other leads into the scrubs. Both are beautiful, but if you head into the scrubs, keep Fido away from the prickly pear cactus and bring lots of water! There are two different picnic areas here, so plan to pack a lunch and enjoy the day while you explore Florida's unique plant and animal wildlife!
Another, completely different, way to see Crooked Lake is by visiting Crooked Lake Sandhill, a different park with a self-guided trail into the endangered sandhill ecosystem. In these trails, you will see the unique savanna and airy pine forest, getting as far as 215 feet above sea level to see Crooked Lake from a truly different perspective. You can also explore the depression of an old sinkhole, going deep into the ground after you've gone as high as you can go. Fido will love seeing the wildflowers and exotic animal life. There are picnic tables, but no other listed facilities, so bring lots of water and plan ahead!
You can spend the day in the beautiful Lake Wales Ridge State Forest, where you can choose from four different tracts to explore, each with their own unique ecosystem, or explore them all! Leashed pets are allowed, and you can picnic and grill, camp, hike, fish, and paddle boat in this beautiful scenic area. Check out Florida's State Forest Trailwalker Program Guide if you are looking to hike this area, as some of the entrances are miles down the road. While you are here, check out their rare and endangered or threatened plant and animal wildlife. The scrub ecosystem that this area is famous for has been around for thousands of years, and is the only place that some of these animals and plants call home.
About 20 miles down the road is another beautiful natural park that you won't want to miss, located near Indian Lake Estates in Lake Wales. Here, you'll find the scenic park, SUMICA, known as the largest of Polk County's environmental lands. You and Fido can explore, take pictures, and play while you check out the 12 species of rare plants and animals only found here in the 4,031-acre park. SUMICA used to be an old lumbering and turpentine town -- now it's a modern-day ghost town, so you can still see remnants of the history from when it vanished in 1927. The picnic shelter is available on a first-come, first-served basis and is located near the Lake Marion Creek shoreline. Bring lots of water and snacks, and plan ahead for other facilities!
