North Toledo Bend Wildlife Management Area

San Miguel ParkEast of Center, Tx. in Shelby County, this is a 3,600 acre area located on Toledo Bend Reservoir. 

The WMA has been preserved by the Sabine River Authority of Texas through a cooperative agreement with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Ducks Unlimited for the purpose of creating and restoring waterfowl breeding and winter habitat. The project includes the impoundment of a 500 acre area on lands owned and made available by the SRA of Texas. The dam is designed to hold water at the 172' mean sea level elevation when Toledo Bend Reservoir is full and and waterfowl are migrating southward and to release water back into the reservoir after the northward migration. The shallow wetlands area provides habitat to many species of waterfowl including wintering mallards and wood ducks, dove, quail, non-game birds, wading and shore birds, white tailed deer, mammals, reptiles and fish.

Visitors may access the area by vehicle as well as enter the 500 acre impoundment via a roller boat ramp which has been constructed on the 200 foot long embankment.  (800) 792-1112.
