This 3,755-acre area was once a lowland hardwood forest intermingled with cypress sloughs. More than 1,000 acres of this wetland habitat are managed through the manipulation of water levels to provide high quality natural foods, such as millets, smartweed, sprangletop, sedges, and invertebrates. These food resources are highly sought after by migrating and wintering waterfowl, shorebirds, and other wetland wildlife species. Row crops and green browse are grown on the area to provide nutritious food for geese and field-feeding ducks. Duck and goose hunting and viewing waterfowl are the most popular outdoor activities. Bald eagles are common from late fall through early spring. Visitors should use extreme caution while boating or wading, because deep water and hazardous conditions are possible when the area is flooded. Hunting, fishing, trapping, camping, dog training, launching and landing boats is allowed 24 hours a day on areas where these activities are permitted. Ten Mile Pond Conservation Area is east of East Prairie on Route 80, then five miles south on Route 102. To reach area headquarters, from Route 102, turn east on the gravel County Road 518, continue 2.5 miles and turn north on Route VV; then go 2.5 miles.
