Hugo State Wildlife Area

Aliases: Kinney State Wildlife Area (Clingingsmith Tract)

This remote State Wildlife Area is much like its neighbor, Kinney SWA (Kinney Tract). The several ponds are small, as are the trees below the dam, but they are so isolated that they tend to attract good migrants. Burrowing Owls live in the prairie dog town just west of the entrance, and Mountain Plovers can occasionally be seen. Look also for mule and white-tailed deer, pronghorn, red fox, coyote, cottontail rabbits, jackrabbits, and muskrat. Like at Kinney, you can camp at the Clingingsmith Tract for free.
