Overview

This park is a terrific birding place with 147 species listed as common to the area. Four separate sections provide habitat for migratory and nesting waterfowl, non-game birds, mammals, and fishes. The areas cannot be seen from the highway, so it is a surprise to take a dirt road and find a wetland with tall reeds. Chimney Springs, Locke`s Pond, Big Well Ponds, and Blue Eagle Pond are four parts of the area accessible over dirt roads. This area is open from late spring until early fall. Fees and reservations are not needed to access this park. Visitors can enjoy hiking, backpacking and wildlife viewing at the Railroad Valley Wildlife Management Area.
