Yellowbank Wildlife Management Area

Yellowbank WMA is a 6,000 acre wildlife management area owned by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources in Breckinridge County.  Located along the Ohio River, the habitat ranges from flat river bottom agriculture fields to steeply sloped woodland and rock bluffs.  Several fields on the area have been restored to native prairie warm season grasses, and shallow water wetlands have been created along the Ohio River to hold waterfowl.  A waterfowl viewing tower is available at one of the wetlands for viewing waterfowl that use the area during the winter.

Directions

The management area is located on Hwy 259 approximately 20 miles North of Hardinsburg, along the Ohio River and near the Meade County line.
