All visitors must sign in at Fish and Wildlife Areas starting today

UNDATED – A new property rule will go into effect later this summer requiring all visitors to fish & wildlife areas to sign in and get a one-day permit card before going into the field, regardless of activity.

To ease into this new requirement, the Department of Natural Resources asks that visitors sign in beginning today, April 1.

The one-day access permit must be kept on hand while visiting the respective FWA and must be completed and returned to a self-service booth, dropbox, or the office before leaving.

Officials appreciate your patience in taking the extra time to fill out the permit. Feedback from these cards helps staff identify ways to improve Indiana’s FWAs for all users.

All FWAs listed on the DNR website, except Wilbur Wright FWA will follow this process.
