There is only one main road going into Kissimmee Prairie Preserve — well okay, two, if you go by names. Peavine brings you in heading north and then you must turn to the west on Military Trail to get to the campgrounds and office. This post is not to explain how to get to those places, however, but to encourage visitors to pay attention while driving it, to limit themselves to the speed limit (or slower), and realize that they are sharing it with the Preserve's permanent residents, many of whom have their own uses for it.
There is always a reward for those who go slowly and look carefully, not just alongside the road and out into the prairie, but on the road itself — at any time of the day or night.
Here are just a few basic rules to observe when on the Preserve road:
WATCH FOR ONCOMING TRAFFIC
STOP FOR CROSSING GUARDS
ALWAYS YIELD TO PEDESTRIANS
WATCH OUT FOR CHILDREN
SPEEDING FINES DOUBLED WHEN ROAD CREW PRESENT
BE PREPARED TO STOP
