Sheffield Nelson Dagmar Wildlife Management Area
Sheffield Nelson Dagmar WMA is a treasure containing significant natural communities, among them, old growth  Tupelo-Cypress swamps. Some of the Cypress trees may have sprouted 500 years before Columbus discovered America. The WMA is also considered an important waterfowl wintering area and supports a diverse native wildlife community including white-tailed deer, black bear, wild turkey, alligators and wintering bald eagles. The Ramsar Convention, an international intergovernmental treaty that has provided the framework for protection of the world’s most significant wetlands, has named Dagmar WMA a “wetland of international importance”. This important wetland ecosystem contains approximately 10,137 acres and is protected and managed by AGFC.

There are 14 primitive campsites on the area maintained by area personnel.
