Things To Do



This is a 3,299-acre Wildlife Management Area open to hunting seasonally. Camping, pre-season scouting, hiking, picnicking, canoeing, and other recreational uses are allowed year-round, unless otherwise posted at the WMA check station or at a specific recreation site. However, horseback riding and bicycling are restricted to open, improved roads, designated trails or designated areas. Horse and bicycle trails and areas may be closed during certain hunting seasons to avoid user conflicts. Specific recreation sites can be closed as needed for management purposes by posting at the site. All WMA visitors are encouraged to wear hunter orange during hunting seasons. Refer to the annual hunting seasons and regulations to determine when specific WMA are open for hunting and what type of hunting is occurring.
