PRIME FEEDING TIMES
The Leavenworth Wildlife Area is 341 acres consisting primarily of timber with some open grassland areas. These grassland areas exemplify the historic native prairie that once dominated this area. Management techniques employed on the wildlife area include prescribed burning, timber encroachment control, and control of invasive plant species.
Deer and turkey commonly use the wildlife area. Squirrels and rabbits are also found on the area in good numbers. Other wildlife that may be seen at Leavenworth State Lake includes furbearers, waterfowl, amphibians, reptiles, and both resident and migrating songbirds. Upland birds may also potentially be found on the area. Hunters and trappers are reminded to be considerate of other public users as well as surrounding neighbors with domestic pets.
Primitive camping is allowed in designated areas. No electricity or running water is available. There are two open shelter houses that can be reserved by contacting the area manager. Please carry out all garbage.
