The Apalachicola River Wildlife
and Environmental Area


Apalachicola River WMA 2017-2018 Regulations Brochure & Map


The Apalachicola River Wildlife and Environmental Area covers 86,140 acres located in Franklin and Gulf counties.

Apalachicola River

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation commission tells us that the Apalachicola River Wildlife and Environmental Area is part of a vast ecosystem that begins hundreds of miles away in the Chattahoochee National Forest in Georgia. The 86,140-acre Apalachicola River WEA contains the largest expanse of floodplain forest in Florida. The floodplain forest of the lower Apalachicola River protects, feeds, and nurtures Apalachicola Bay.

One of the best ways to explore this land and water immortalized in the film Ulee's Gold is by canoe or kayak. Here you can fish for largemouth bass, catfish, striped bass, and bream, and hunt dove, quail, squirrel, white-tailed deer, turkey, and waterfowl. Enjoy the spring and fall wildflowers, some rare, some common, and the abundant resident and migratory birds.
