Overview

Arrowhead is located at the Wildlife Resources Division-Game Management Section Regional office near Armuchee. The 400-acre Wildlife Management Area was originally a farming community and later developed into a privately owned fish hatchery. Bought by the state in 1968, the hatchery was operational until 1979. Today the 14 hatchery ponds and three fishing lakes are currently used to aid in the management of waterfowl and wildlife. The site offers a 2.2-mile interpretive nature trail, which focuses on natural history and the native wildlife of the area. This trail includes a wetland and four beaver lodges. Although public fishing is not available, visiting students on field trips may fish and take home their catch.
