Hunting on Public Land

Apalachicola Wildlife Management Area

Apalachicola WMA 2017-2018 Regulations Brochure & Map


Encompassing nearly 564,000 acres in Franklin, Leon, Liberty, and Wakulla counties, the Apalachicola Wildlife Management Area is part of the Apalachicola National Forest.

The Florida National Scenic Trail traverses the area, meandering through pine palmetto flatwoods interspersed by titi and cypress swamps. Wildlife is abundant and includes red-cockaded woodpeckers, osprey, bald eagles, turkeys, alligators, deer, and bears.

Recreational opportunities abound on this area: hunting in the fall and winter, horseback riding, biking, hiking, swimming, fishing, and paddling.

Yellow pitcher plants

The Apalachee Scenic Byway (CR 379) winds through rare wet prairie delicately-colored with yellow and red pitcher plants in the spring.

Camping is permitted at designated primitive campsites during the general gun season and year round at the Northwest Florida Water Management District campground at Florida River Island. A portion of this campground has been set aside for recreational vehicles, but there are no hook-ups. Kitchen stoves, refrigerators and freezers (unless contained in mobile campers) lumber, sheet metal or other building materials or permanent improvements are not allowed by the Water Management District. For additional information, contact the Florida Water management District at 850-539-5999.
