Plank Road Wildlife Management Area
Managed in cooperation with the Florida Forest Service.
As part of Plank Road State Forest, this wildlife management area in Jefferson and Leon Counties is located within a corridor of conservation lands that protect the St. Marks River. The area is dominated by pine flatwoods and forested wetlands that are conserved through prescribed burning, timber management and the treatment of invasive plants.
The St. Marks River and its tributaries create great opportunities for catching largemouth bass and sunfish.
To hunt or fish, you must possess the appropriate licenses and permits.
Plank Road WMA is a great spot to view wildlife. Try hiking, biking or horseback riding on the roads and fire lines where you may see white-tailed deer, bobcats, river otters, wading birds and even the occasional Florida black bear. Maintaining habitat for wildlife is a key consideration whenever land management decisions are made on Plank Road WMA.
