Jumper Creek WMA is a 10,000-plus-acre tract of the Withlacoochee State Forest. It is located along the east side of the Withlacoochee River in western Sumter County, south of Lake Panasoffkee. Most of this area is floodplain forest and oak-cabbage palm hammock. Jumper Creek, a blackwater creek that flows north into the Withlacoochee River, runs through the center of the area. Recreational opportunities include hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing, primitive camping, biking, and hiking on two loop trails. There are excellent paddling opportunities on the Withlacoochee River. One can access the area by water from a boat ramp at 470 and the Panasoffkee Outlet River, which is just on the north side of the WMA. Jumper Creek WMA is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail and excellent opportunities exist to view limpkins at the 470 bridge. Additionally, wild hogs, swallow-tailed kite, white-tailed deer, raccoon, and wild turkey are a few of the species that can be seen on the area.
