Robbers Cave WMA - Portion A covers 610 acres of Latimer County in Southeast Oklahoma.  It is one of two portions, the other being Portion B (5,570 acres). The area is located on Highway 2 north of Wilburton. The area is adjacent to the Robbers Cave State Park.  

The area consists mostly of hills covered with pine timber, with scattered oaks and hickory and very few openings.

From Wilburton: 5 miles north on State Hwy 2, with areas located on both the east and west sides of the highway. The 2 primary entrances into the WMA are located just north of the Robbers Cave State Park and are marked with WMA signs.

  • Deer: White-tailed deer are present in fair numbers but are highly sought after.  
  • Turkey: Eastern wild turkeys are present in good numbers but are highly sought after.
  • Rabbit: Cottontails are present in good numbers.            
  • Squirrel: Gray and fox squirrel are present in good numbers.  
  • Furbearers: Coyote, bobcat and raccoon are available. 

Proper management of the many natural gas pipelines provides the needed openings in the pine timber.    

Camping is allowed in designated areas only on the area. Camping facilities ranging from primitive camping to cabins or a lodge are offered at Robbers Cave State Park (1-800-654-8240). 

Limited fishing opportunities exist on the management area. Fishing opportunities located on the adjacent Robbers Cave State Park include several clear water lakes and streams. One of Oklahoma’s popular winter time trout fisheries is located below Lake Carlton.

That portion lying east and south of S.H. 2 and Coon Creek Road.
