Blockhouse Lake/Hay Creek Hoffman Lake Wildlife Area

Today, this property is primarily managed for whitetail deer, ruffed grouse, woodcock and bears. Commercial timber harvest is the main habitat management tool and follows a harvest prescription designed to meet project goals while being silviculturally sound. This area also has a vast network of gated hunter walking trails and wildlife openings. In addition to hunting and trapping activities, great berry picking, off trail snowshoeing, birding and wildlife watching opportunities exist.


From Park Falls travel 6 miles east on Hwy. 182, turn north on Blockhouse Lake/Forest Road 153 then west on Lake Road.
