Magnolia Hollow CA

This rugged 1,740-acre area is bordered by Establishment Creek and Schmidt's Island, along-side the Mississippi River. The area features steep bluffs and scenic river views. Eagles are commonly sighted along the river. There are several disabled-accessible opportunities for nature viewing and outdoor recreation.

The forest at Magnolia Hollow Conservation Area is diverse, ranging from mixed hardwoods to cedar glades. Magnolia Hollow, itself, is a deep draw, containing a wide variety of trees, shrubs, herbs and wildflowers, including begonia orchids.

Hunters are welcome to pursue deer, turkey, and small game during the appropriate seasons. A small archery range and a disabled-accessible shotgun-shooting range, both unstaffed, give hunters a chance to do some target practice before their seasons open.
