History:

This area is leased from the owners of the property to supply hunting and fishing opportunities.

Description:

Hain is located in Ford County approximately 5 miles north and 8 miles east of Dodge City and is 2 1/4 miles east of US HWY 283. The area consists of 20 acres of uplands and 35 surface acres of shallow lake. Due to its shallow depth, Hain supplies excellent wetland habitat. However, the lake may go dry during drought periods. Waterfowl hunting is the primary use of the area. Due to the general lack of water in the area, the lake is stocked when conditions allow to supply basic fishing opportunity. The area is closed to vehicle traffic during waterfowl seasons. Walk-in traffic is welcome for both fishing and hunting during this time. Parking lots are supplied at both entrances when the gates are closed. When gates are open, vehicles must stay on established trails. Camping is allowed on the area, but there are few facilities and no restroom is available. Boats are allowed on the lake, but no ramp is available.

Special Regulations:

Vehicles are restricted to parking areas when gates are closed for waterfowl seasons.
