Birding: Birds of many species may be found including raptors, shrikes, and several species of songbird.
Camping: Dispersed camping is available in the Tumey Hills. There is no camping within 200 yards of any wildlife watering improvement. You must park within 15 feet (roughly one vehicle length) of any roadway when camping or leaving a vehicle unattended to minimize habitat and vegetation impacts.

Please remember to bring a shovel with you for both personal sanitation and fire prevention purposes. Please utilize good camping ethics, and remember to pack out your garbage when you leave.

Hunting: Deer, pig, upland game bird, small game, and varmints. Hunter walkthroughs are located near the vicinity of the western access point.
Restrictions: Closed to motorized use during fire season from mid-April to mid-October. No shooting zone within 150 yards of any developed area. There is no night hunting. Vehicles are restricted to designated routes. OHV’s are prohibited.
