A Guide to Wildlife Management Areas in
(For a free copy of the complete booklet, call the Kentucky Department of
Fish & Wildlife Resources at 1-800-858-1549.)
The following rules apply to ALL Wildlife Management Areas owned, leased, or
managed by the KDFWR.
1. Area users shall abide by all hunting and fishing laws which apply to
the WMA whenever using a WMA for hunting, fishing or trapping.
2. No squirrel, rabbit, quail, grouse, turkey or furbearer hunting or
trapping is permitted on WMA’s during the first two days of modern gun deer
season (second Saturday and Sunday in November), unless the season is open for
these species and gun deer hunting is prohibited.
3. WMA visitors shall not enter areas that are closed by signs.
4. Firearms may not be discharged within 100 yards of a residence or
occupied building located on or off the WMA. No hunting at any established
access point, launching ramp, or recreation area.
5. During a quota deer, pheasant or elk hunt on a WMA, only persons
participating in the quota hunt are permitted on the WMA, except waterfowl
hunters hunting in some areas posted open.
6. Camping is permitted only in designated areas if such area exists.
Campfires are permitted only if attended. No other fires are allowed.
7. Parking must be confined to designated areas if such area exists. If no
parking area is designated, parking is generally permitted along maintained
roads in such a manner that does not block traffic.
8. Unless otherwise authorized by the KDFWR, vehicles used on WMAs must be
street-legal. ATVs and ORVs are not permitted. Vehicles (including motorcycles
and bicycles) are permitted only on maintained roads.
9. It is unlawful to cut trees or fences, dump trash or litter, or damage
any property or habitat in any fashion. Collecting plants is prohibited.
10. Horseback riding is permitted ONLY on a trail or areas specifically marked
for horseback riding or on a maintained public road open to public vehicular
traffic, during a permitted event or while engaged in a legal hunting
Most of the public wildlife areas listed in this guide are
owned by various agencies of the state and federal government. Many areas were
purchased with dollars from hunting and fishing license sales. Funding from the
same sources pay for wildlife management programs on more than 70 percent of
these areas. Kentucky’s public-use lands total 1,602,978 acres, or 6.3% of the
Using This Guide: The
areas listed in this guide are arranged west to east and divided into sections
based on major watersheds and the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife
Resources’ wildlife regions: Purchase, Green River, Bluegrass, Northeast and
Southeast. Areas with access for mobility impaired permit holders are marked**.
The guide uses icons to indicate available facilities, recreation and common
species and lists fairly specific directions to each area. Using this guide
along with a current Kentucky highway map should help you reach your chosen
destination. Maps of some areas are available by calling the Kentucky Department
of Fish and Wildlife Resources toll-free at (800) 858-1549, Monday-Friday, 7:30
a.m.-5:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
Vehicles: Misuse of all-terrain vehicles
(ATVs), off-road vehicles (ORVs) and four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicles has caused
a great deal of destruction on wildlife management areas (WMAs). 1ATV
use is prohibited on all WMAs. Only licensed,
street-legal vehicles can be used, and must remain on a WMA’s established,
permanent roadways. If a roadway is gated, no motor vehicles are allowed beyond
Habitat: Wildlife management practices on
these areas provide food, cover and water for a wide variety of species.
Plantings and farm crops left standing in the field are important food sources.
Brushy areas, unmowed fields and woods provide both natural foods and places for
wildlife to hide. Ponds and watering holes supply additional sources of water
for terrestrial creatures and provide homes for aquatic and amphibian species.
Viewing Wildlife: Since wild creatures are
more active at dawn and dusk, these are the best times to watch wildlife. The
widest variety of species can be seen during spring and fall migrations.
Although few of these public areas have developed recreational facilities,
wildlife areas are excellent places to go hiking, birding or simply enjoy the
outdoors and get back in touch with nature. Kentucky Wildlife Viewing Guide
gives descriptions and directions to 66 locations where visitors have reasonable
opportunities to view wildlife. The paperback book is available from the
Kentucky Afield Gift Shop, Frankfort, state park gift shops and bookstores.
Hunting Notes: Where hunting is permitted,
check the KENTUCKY HUNTING & TRAPPING GUIDE for season dates and
other laws. Also, check for signs and bulletin boards on the areas themselves
for special regulations or requirements. It’s a good idea for anyone, whether
planning to hunt or not, to obtain current hunting information on an area before
