Property Description

The Turkey Creek Tract was acquired by the DNR in October 2004 as a joint venture between the DNR and York County as a special project of the York County Sportsmen's Steering Committee with support from the York County Legislative Delegation. It was purchased with County Game and Fish Funds and other monies provided by the County of York.

The Tract consists of approximately 356 acres and lies about 5.5 miles west of the town of McConnells on Burris Road (S-46-59) in York County. Turkey Creek bisects the tract and thus provides a wide bottomland habitat. The remaining acreage is comprised mostly of planted loblolly pine with scattered hardwoods. Future plans include pine stand thinnings and development of wildlife openings and parking areas. Hunting is allowed within Game Zone 2 regulations.
