Hawkeye Wildlife Area closed for camping due to damage, destruction

Posted: Updated:

The Hawkeye Wildlife Area has been closed to camping after recent incidents of destruction to the area.

Management says the closure will remain in place while authorities try to fix problems such as littering, off-road driving, illegal tree grass and cutting, drug and alcohol use and large bonfires left unattended.

Officers with the DNR say they have been working to address these issues for years, however, the recent increase in amount of violations is what led to the temporary close for camping.
