About Sugar Ridge Fish & Wildlife Area:

The Sugar Ridge Fish & Wildlife Area is composed of six areas, totaling approximately 8,500 acres.  Much of the area was strip-mined and then donated to the state.  It features about 100 pits and lakes, along with rows of overburden from the mining operation. The land that has not been mined is mostly rough and rolling.  Most revenues are derived from hunting, fishing, and trapping license sales. Sugar Ridge also receives federal Pittman-Robertson and Dingell-Johnson program funds to aid fish and wildlife restoration.
