Northfork Waterfowl Nesting Area

The area is closed from October 15 to April 15.



To get to Northfork Waterfowl Nesting Area from Bloomington, go east on State Road 46 to Kent Road. This is a gravel road just before the bridge over Salt Creek. Turn right onto Kent Road and follow it across a bridge to McGowan Road. Turn right onto McGowan Road and follow to the Stillwater marsh overlook and the North Fork area.

Northfork Waterfowl Nesting Area is open April 15 through October 15; the rest of the year there are viewing stations to watch waterfowl. Bald eagles have been sighted.

Parts of the Northfork Waterfowl Nesting Area complex are closed from October 1 through April 15. Hunting is permitted in the Stillwater/North Fork area. This area is excellent for waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds, and wading birds.
