Mallory Swamp Wildlife Management Area includes more than 29,000 acres in southeastern Lafayette County, southwest of Branford. Mallory Swamp is a combination of basin swamp, mixed shrub swamp, and mesic flatwoods. Due to a large wildfire in 2001, much of Mallory Swamp has unique open vistas of natural grassland with scattered pine and cypress trees. The tract is undergoing a hydrologic and natural communities restoration.

Recreational opportunities include hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing, horseback riding, hiking, and biking. Wildlife on the area include white-tailed deer, feral hogs, alligator, black bear, white ibis, wood storks, turkey, limpkins, wood storks, and great blue herons. Within the area are nearly 100 miles of grassy roads. Camping is prohibited on the area.

The Mallory Swamp tract is a primitive recreation site. Allowable uses are wildlife viewing, fishing, hunting, bicycling, hiking, and horseback riding on administrative roads.

Access to the Mallory Swamp tract from Mayo: Travel south on SR 51 to CR 360, turn left; travel 11 miles southeast on CR 360; the pavement ends and the road becomes dirt (Crapps Tower Road); continue 4 miles to the entrance into Mallory Swamp. You can also take CR 354 from US 27 in 2 places - see map.
