Hardwood Impoundment

Hiking the Hardwood ImpoundmentCanoe or kayak the Hardwood Impoundment

Size:

1,500 Acres

Description:

This area offers some great wildlife viewing opportunities right from your vehicle. Wildlife have grown accustomed to vehicles passing along the two dikes that cross the impoundment. Good viewing can also be found from the water. Over six miles of flooded bottom lands are dotted with islands and many acres of flooded timber can be explored by canoe, kayak, small boat or even pontoon. A boat access site is available at the county-run campground.

This area is in the middle of a huge deer wintering complex—a mixture of cedar and other swamp conifer habitat with upland islands covering many square miles. Deer concentrate in this sheltered habitat during severe winter months, many migrating from as far away as 50 miles.
