Sunflower Wildlife Management AreaLast Updated: 07/17/2012

Sunflower WMA, is approximately 60,000 acres located in Delta National Forest, Sharkey County near Rolling Fork. Recreational opportunities include fishing in the scattered lakes or on the Big and Little Sunflower Rivers, which are accessible by two boat ramps.  Hunting deer, turkeys, squirrels, and waterfowl are also popular activities.  Hunting access can be made easier by using the numerous primitive campsites scattered throughout the forest that are managed by the USFS.  Non-consumptive activities such as hiking and bird watching are also encouraged.  There is a nature trail at Blue Lake that is managed by the USFS with plaques in place along the trail to provide information about plants and animals.

Take Hwy 16 east from Rolling Fork about 9 miles. Turn right onto Pipleline Road for approximately 1 mile; turn right, before check station. Headquarters .25 miles, on left.
