Chen Bay WMA

Lincoln County

Located to the North of Lake Benton is the Chen Bay Wildlife Management Area.

After leaving Norwegian Creek County Park, go back to US Highway 75 and turn North for 1 mile, turn East and follow the curving Lincoln County Road for about 3 miles. The basin to the North is a great place to check for migrating Bald Eagle or Osprey. Turn North on the unmarked gravel road that splits between the large basin to the Northwest, and the smaller basin on the East. This gravel runs through an area where Cattle Egret and Black-crowned Night-Heron are almost annually seen in spring, and a sizeable planting of conifers that may hold a Townsend's Solitaire in late fall.
