Babcock/Webb - Planning Your Visit

Helpful Information

Babcock/Webb WMA offers something for everyone, in all seasons. Visit in fall or spring to view the tremendous diversity of migratory birds that visit the area. The network of roads through the area means that you can explore in the heat of summer without facing an onslaught of heat and bugs. Winter visitors can comfortably fish in and around the network of ponds scattered throughout the property.

Archery and small game seasons occur in the fall and turkey hunting takes place in the spring. Note that during archery and spring turkey seasons, only persons participating in the hunt are allowed access. Hikers and paddlers should wear brightly colored clothing during seasonal hunts, and avoid the first hour or so of daylight to minimize disturbance to hunters.
