With topography ranging from flat to gently rolling hills, the area is home to mixed grasses, briers, prairie grasses, clover, and small shrubs. Visitors may see cottontail rabbits, ring-necked pheasant, mourning doves, squirrels, woodchucks, raccoons, muskrats, minks, and opossums as well as Canadian geese, wood ducks, and mallards.
Adjacent to both the Delaware Reservoir and Delaware State Park, the wildlife area can be reached from the east and west via State Route 229, and from the north by U.S. Route 23 or Country Road 220. Click here for more information on the Delaware Wildlife Area!
