Steep hills and narrow valleys characterize this 2,082-acre area, where the northern border is marked by approximately 2.5 miles of Apple Creek Stream frontage. The area is home to a mix of upland oak-hickory forests and a few bottomland forests.

The Conservation Department has created watering ponds and planted food plots and agricultural crops within the forest to provide additional food sources for wildlife. Timber harvests are an important part of habitat management, as they produce forage and cover for forest wildlife.

There is a boat ramp, multi-use trails, primitive camping, firearms range, and fishing ponds. Activities include: bird watching; canoeing; fishing; horseback rding; trapping and hunting.

The area is located north of Cape Girardeau. From I-55, take the Fruitland exit; go north on Route 61, seven miles; go east on Route CC, six miles.
