Livingston County WMA and State Natural Area Information

Public Hunting Area Location

Regional Locator

WMA Overview Location & Size: Livingston County, 1,898 acres. Contact: (270) 753-6913 Elevation: minimum 300 feet, maximum 667 feet. Entrance GPS coordinates: Latitude N 37.33616, Longitude W -88.41726 Area Habitat: mostly forest: open land 3%, forest 83%, wetland 14%, open water 0%.

Directions & Description: Consists of three tracts, the Bissell Bluff SNA (562 acres) , Newman’s Bluff SNA (461 acres), and Reynolds (873 acres). * To reach the Bissell Bluff State Natural Area, from Smithland travel about 5 miles north on HWY 60 to Three Rivers Rock RD. Go south on Three Rivers Rock RD to the intersection with Bizzelll Bluff RD. Turn left on Bizzell Bluff Rd by the quarry entrance. After 2.3 miles turn right on Tomahawk RD and proceed just 0.2 miles to area entrance. The Bissell Bluff tract protects a mature forest and bottomland forest along the Cumberland River. This area floods annually when the Cumberland River overflows in the spring. Terrain could be considered very rugged. * To reach Newman's Bluff, from Smithland, go east of US 60 about 3 miles and turn left on SR 137. Go about 11 miles and turn right into Mt. Pigsah Church RD (1436). Follow about 4.5 miles, and watch for an entrance sign. Turn right on Old Good Hope Cemetery RD and proceed down the steep hill around Old Good Hope Cemetery for about ¼ mile. The Newman’s Bluff tract protects habitat along the forested slope of Newman’s Bluff and creek. High limestone bluffs overlook a deep heavily forested valley. This tract has a stream-fed lake near the parking area. A small waterfall is below the lake. * Access to Reynolds tract from Joiner RD, about ½ mile on Mt. Pigsah Church RD beyond Old Good Hope Cemetery RD. Access is also available from Hughes RD, off HWY 133. Good to moderate populations of squirrel, deer, turkey and songbirds exist on the area. The area is open under statewide regulations for small game. Additional restrictions apply to turkey and deer hunting.

See the Fall Hunting and Trapping Guide for specific information concerning hunting seasons. Management of these tracts is shared between the Livingston County Fiscal Court, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission, portions purchased with funds from the Heritage Lands Conservation Fund.

Online Resources Public Hunting Area users must abide by the Kentucky hunting, trapping, and fishing regulations. It is incumbent on persons using Public Hunting Areas to become familiar with these regulations. Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources provides these regulations on our Web site at fw.ky.gov or by calling 1-800-858-1549.
