Ft. Cobb WMA covers 3,500 acres in Caddo County around the north end of Ft. Cobb lake. Located south of Hwy 152 and east of Hwy 146, the area is a mixture of post oak, blackjack, red cedars and native mixed grasses. The area has uplands, flood plain and creek bottoms. Mixed grasses, plum thickets and eastern red cedar predominate on upland sites. The lake is fed by three tributaries, Willow Creek to the northeast, Lake Creek to the north and Cobb Creek to the west. All of these creeks are timbered with cottonwood, willow and some hardwoods. The annual precipitation for the area is about 28 inches.
