Lawrence Creek Fish and Wildlife Area

Lawrence Creek Wildlife Area

Lawrence Creek Fish and Wildlife Area is a 961-acre parcel surrounding Lawrence Creek and it's headwaters. It's located in the northwestern part of Marquette County and east-central Adams County. The stream is high quality trout water. The waters are generally crystal clear. There have been various stream bank improvement projects within the stream enhancing the already excellent fishing opportunities.

The vegetative cover is rich with diversity with a large portion being lowland brush and swamp hardwoods to upland forests and grasslands. Additionally, many old agricultural fields have been abandoned and are reverting to natural vegetation; others have planted into pine plantations, converted into native prairies, or continued to be farmed in share-crop agreements. This unique mix of woods, water and fields provides prime habitat for a variety of game and non-game species as well offering a pleasant satisfaction to all who visit this natural and beautiful area.

Recreational opportunities are a year round occurrence and seemingly endless, from fishing and hunting to canoeing and snowshoeing. There exists numerous parking areas scattered about the entire stretch of the property providing ample access points.
