Halfway Prairie Wildlife Area

The 128-acre Halfway Prairie Wildlife Area is a public hunting area located immediately north of Indian Lake County Park on STH 19. Land cover is a mix of crop fields and steep wooded hillsides. Deer and turkey hunting, foraging, hiking, snowshoeing and photography are the primary recreation opportunities.  A prominent historical/cultural feature of the property is the former Matz Farmstead stone ruins that were built in 1907 and burned down in 1948.
