Kinney SWA (Kinney Tract)

Small and secluded, Kinney State Wildlife Area can be very attractive to birds. The trees right around the parking lot and the Russian-Olives along the east shore provide shade and can be good for migrating flycatchers, warblers and sparrows. A stand of willows on the southwest shore of the lake is worth checking too. Marsh birds congregate in the cattails at the far north end of the lake, and you might see mule and white-tailed deer, pronghorn, rabbits, red fox, coyotes, snakes and other reptiles. You can camp for free in this beautiful location.
