The bulk of the WMA is bottomlands along the Ohio River. Beavers and backwater flooding create seasonal wetland areas. Open to hunting, wildlife watching, photography and fishing. No centerfire rifles are permitted for deer hunting. This area is owned by the American Electric Power Company (AEP) and leased to the Ky. Dept. Fish and Wildlife Resource for public access and hunting. AEP controls most of the crop that is grown on the area.
