We are open 365 days a year for an all seasons experience of a most scenic protected wildlife area with high straight cliffs, wide sweeping bends, beautiful riverine shores and multiple bird species. Of the 6,000 acres of Old Hickory WMA, only 1,000 acres are accessible from public access locations. The remainder are accessible only by kayak and boat. There are patches of hardwood forest of oak, hickory, and maple, and riparian forest of Black Willow and sycamore along the shoreline of parts of the lake. These forested areas are mixed with cropland that is flooded for waterfowl in winter.
Wildlife to Watch for: Waterfowl are abundant in winter. Early successional birds are common in summer, including Indigo Bunting, Northern Cardinal, Eastern Towhee, and Yellow-breasted Chat. Sparrows of various species may be seen throughout the winter.
You can stop at as many points as you like to do photography, swim or walk on the shores or to explore Armstrong Island. Your allotted time is yours, and, if you accidentally go past a small extra thirty minutes, we are not going to cry too much!
