Waubesa Wetlands Wildlife Area

The 37-acre Waubesa Wetlands Wildlife Area is a public hunting area that borders the northeast corner of the Waubesa Wetlands State Natural Area and includes approximately 1500 feet of Lake Waubesa shoreline.  Wetlands are the primary land cover on the northern half of the property transitioning to a wooded hillside oak savanna to the south.  Limited waterfowl, deer and turkey hunting are the primary recreation opportunities. Walk-in access is available from a small parking lot off Stace Road.
