High water levels have prompted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to temporarily close Banana Grove Road, the boat ramp entrance road and the campground at the Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA). At this time, other portions of the WMA remain open.

The closure goes into effect immediately and will be lifted as soon as conditions allow. This action is necessary to ensure the safety of those visiting the WMA.

If you have additional questions, please call the FWC’s South Regional Office during normal business hours at 561-625-5122.
