Honey Creek State Wildlife Area
Honey Creek Wildlife Area’s 1,083 acres sit in three separate parcels in the Fox River watershed between Waterford and Burlington. It’s a great place to bring your canoe or kayak for an enjoyable day on Long Lake. Hiking trails take you to the heart of the properties that are a matrix of marsh, uplands, grassy field, forests and lowland brush. This mix of habitat provides opportunities to see flycatchers, terns, Great-blue Herons, American Bitterns, and Sandhill Cranes.
Directions: Located 2 miles north of Burlington on Maple Road, or 1 mile southwest of Rochester on Hwy W, or 3 miles west of Rochester on Hwy FF or Oak Knoll Road.
