Erickson Wildlife Area
The Andersen Wildlife Area , Erickson Wildlife Area, and Hacklebarney Woods are all designated public hunting areas. All Iowa state hunting dates, laws, and regulations apply in these areas. Food plots and habitat are established to promote optimal hunting experiences.
The MCCB manages three areas you can access rivers for recreation. Bonds Landing and the Elliott canoes accesses provide entry to the East Nishnabotna river. The Tenville canoes access provides entry to the West Nodaway river.
Hacklebarney Woods is a wonderful place for a scenic trail ride. The Friends of Hacklebarney Trails have worked hard over the years to provide a location that supports equestrian needs. Four miles of all-weather trails have been created for year-round use to equine enthusiasts and hikers. A trail fee of $1 per rider, per day is required to support ongoing projects. Fees may be placed in the drop box at the equestrian camp.
We have two parks, four campgrounds, and 52 sites available for use. Check out the park you'd like to camp at for site fees and rules.
All parks have tables available for a pleasant picnic outing. Shelters at Hacklebarney Woods and Pilot Grove may be reserved for group events. Call our office today to reserve a shelter. A $20 deposit is required for a reservation.
