Hackberry Flat (Distance from Mountain Park 46 minutes, 35 miles)

Created in 1995, Hackberry Flat Wildlife Management Area, located near Frederick in southwestern Oklahoma, offers 7,120-acres of wildlife recreational opportunities. The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, along with many conservation-minded partners, restored this legendary wetland, creating a vast mosaic of wetland habitats for prairie waterfowl, shorebirds and other wetland-dependent birds. Upland areas of native sunflowers and cultivated fields interspersed with mesquite have become one of the state’s premier dove-hunting destinations. Open for scheduled events, the modern Hackberry Flat Center offers interpretive guidance for wildlife enthusiasts, students and educators. 

With the completion of the Hackberry Flat Center, this wetland area now offers wetland classroom experiences for school children, meeting facility for workshops, programs and presentations and a place to offer skill development workshops such as waterfowl identification, bird identification and hunter education classes. 

Game Species of interest:

Waterfowl, Dove, Quail, Sandhill Crane, rabbit, and furbearers such as coyote, bobcat, and racoon.

One designated primitive camping area is offered on the area. Both lodging and restaurants are available in the nearby City of Frederick. The Frederick Chamber of Commerce can be reached at (580) 335-2126
