Three Creeks Conservation Area

This area is predominantly forest with old fields of native warm season grasses and wildflowers. The area offers primitive camping, hiking, bicycle/horse trails, three intermittent streams, and Hunters Cave.

Three Creeks Conservation Area is five miles south of Columbia on Highway 63 and 1.75 miles west on Deer Park Road. The area takes its name from the three creeks that run through the area: Turkey Creek, Bass Creek, and Bonne Femme Creek. The rugged forest features scenic bluffs, intermittent streams, geologic formations, and old eastern red cedar trees. Activities allowed in the conservation area include bicycling, bird watching, camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, and nature viewing. Visit the website for information on hunting regulations and other area rules.
