Winamac Fish & Wildlife Area

Covering 4,880 acres north of Winamac and across U.S.-35 from the Tippecanoe River State Park, the Winamac F&WA is home to a wide variety of wildlife habitats. Available activities include hunting and fishing, hiking, site-seeing, bird-watching, berry-picking, nut-gathering and mushroom-hunting, and target shooting.

In 1959, 3,710 acres of the State Park on the west side of the highway were transferred to the Division of Fish & Game (now Division of Fish & Wildlife); this transferred, plus increases later, became the Winamac FW&A. Most of the funds used in land acquisition, development, operation, and maintenance of this property are derived from the sale of Indiana hunting, fishing, and trapping licenses. Revenue is also received from the federal Pittman-Robertson program for aid to wildlife restoration. These funds are derived from taxes levied on sport hunting equipment. Indiana hunters, fishermen, and trappers are proud to provide this property for wildlife conservation and the benefit of all people.
