Intensive grassland restoration management is occurring on this conservation area. This work will improve habitat for many species of wildlife including, quail, rabbits, grassland songbirds, and pollinators like monarch butterflies and native bees. Management efforts will center around large-scale removal of invasive trees, controlling invasive plants with herbicide, and seeding native prairie plants. Portions of the area may be posted as closed for public safety during these efforts. Call the Schell Osage Office at 417-432-3414 with questions.
From El Dorado Springs, take Highway 54 west 6 miles, then Route AA north 12 miles, then Route RA east 1.50 miles (last 0.50 mile is gravel), then 2950 Road south 0.25 mile to the area.
This area provides waterfowl hunting opportunity for up to 43 parties of hunters in the wetland units, including 25 blinds (two are disabled-accessible) and 18 designated wade-and-shoot positions (two of which are field opportunities). The area also contains fishable lakes and ponds totaling over 900 acres, in addition to opportunity on the Osage River Arm of Truman Reservoir. There is also a boat ramp and primitive campground on each lake.
