This 357 acre Waterfowl Production Area (WPA) hiking trail system is built and maintained by the staff of Indian Trails Campground in collaboration with the US Fish and Wildlife Service. A WPA consists of wetland habitat surrounded by grassland and woodland communities. While a WPA is managed primarily for ducks and geese, they also provide habitat for a variety of other wildlife species such as non-game grassland birds, shorebirds, wading birds, mink, muskrat, wild turkey and deer. Trails are for foot traffic only. The WPA is open to wildlife observation, hiking, cross-country skiing, nature study and photography. Dogs must be on a leash except while engaged in hunting during established open seasons. Take only pictures, leave only footprints!
