The 169-acre Sugar River Wildlife Area Davidson Unit is a public hunting area that features nearly 2/3-miles of stream frontage, a canoe landing, wetlands, and crop fields. The property offers excellent trout fishing and waterfowl hunting as the primary recreation opportunities. Important historical and cultural features are found at the site including the historic Davidson limestone house and effigy mounds. A small parking area is available at the end of the driveway off of STH 69 south of the intersection of Riverside Rd. A public hunting easement on private property covers approximately 108 acres of the wildlife area.
