Camping on Wildlife Management Areas


To minimize exposure to COVID-19 and help protect visitors and employees, the FWC is closing all designated campgrounds on the Wildlife Management Area system for a minimum of 30 days beginning Monday, March 23 at 10 a.m. Also, permits for camping after Monday, March 23 will be canceled. On areas where it is currently allowed, dispersed wilderness camping (camping outside of designated campgrounds or where no permit is required) will continue to be allowed, but only for groups of less than 10 people.

Make your camping reservations through FWC’s convenient online reservation system for the campgrounds listed below. 

With some exceptions, camping is generally very primitive and seasonal. Camping seasons, rules, permits and fees vary from site to site.
