Hope Upland Wildlife Management Area
Acquired by segment in the 1940’s and 1950’s to enhance wildlife habitat and provide public hunting opportunities, the 2115-acre Hope Upland WMA was originally a part of the Southwestern Proving Grounds, a military ammunitions testing site. It consists mainly of upland mixed pine and hardwood stands. A large food plot system dominates the area along with numerous firelanes that are planted in wheat annually. The WMA is known for producing large bucks as well as quail, squirrel, dove and rabbits. The area’s management plan promotes both game and non-game wildlife species and provides excellent bird watching opportunities.

Camping facilities are available at the Fair Park Campground in Hope.
