This state wildlife management area (WMA) along the Crow Wing River offers exceptional public recreation while providing significant water-quality benefits. Extending more than three miles along this major Mississippi River tributary, the WMA's mixed pine and hardwood forest is a great place to hunt, fish, observe wildlife, or go canoeing. The Trust for Public Land acquired 705 acres for the WMA as part of its Mississippi Headwaters Program, a multi-year, multi-partner effort to protect sensitive, at risk shoreline and habitat along the river and its tributaries, safeguarding recreation and natural benefits for future generations.

Funding for this project was provided from the Outdoor Heritage Fund as recommended by the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council.
