Updated Atlas of Public Lands and Fishing Lakes Now Available

The latest updated Oklahoma Wildlife Management Area Atlas is now available from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. This page-by-page guide to Oklahoma’s public hunting lands and Department public fishing lakes features topographical maps of almost every Department-managed public use area in the state.

Since the atlas was first published in the 1970s, it has become an indispensable resource for anyone wanting to explore Oklahoma's outdoors. In fact, a Department-managed area can be found within about an hour's drive of anywhere in the state.

The maps in the 100-plus pages of this fifth-edition atlas depict special features for each WMA or public fishing area (PFA), providing details such as roads, parking areas, designated campsites, food plots, ponds, wetland development units, non-ambulatory zones and more. Sportsmen and sportswomen can find acreage and contact information for each area along with driving directions.

Since the previous edition was published three years ago, many areas have had border changes or land additions, making this latest atlas a must-have for the state’s hunters, anglers and others as they visit more than 1.4 million acres of Department-managed public lands. New maps include Arbuckle Springs WMA, Lake Watonga PFA and Lake Raymond Gary PFA.

The Oklahoma Wildlife Management Area Atlas is priced at $25, which includes a complimentary one-year subscription to Outdoor Oklahoma magazine, the official magazine of the Oklahoma Wildlife Department. The full-color, award-winning magazine provides information related to hunting, fishing, wildlife watching and conservation in Oklahoma. Readers get a first look at the Department’s annual Big Game Report, get insider tips on fishing from the magazine’s annual Anglers’ Guide, and get to read a range of articles and news about the outdoors in Oklahoma. Stunning photography and more can be found in each bimonthly issue.

Updated atlases are sold at several Wildlife Department offices statewide, including the headquarters, 1801 N. Lincoln in Oklahoma City, and the Jenks office, 300 S. Aquarium Drive. To order online go to wildlifedepartment.com and click "purchase a license".
