Open Year-round

The Elk & Bison Prairie remains open year-round, dawn-to-dusk. Winter months offer the best chance to view elk, as the colder and shorter days draw them out later in the morning and earlier in the afternoon to feed.

Campers will find self-service fee camping areas and all basic camping facilities (Backcountry Camping) open throughout the winter. Wranglers Campground and Turkey Bay Off-Highway Vehicle Area, as well as hiking and biking trails and Golden Pond Target Range, will also remain open throughout the winter unless inclement weather causes temporary closures for visitor safety. The Golden Pond Target Range will continue its Wednesday morning closures until 11am, to allow for safe clean-up and maintenance of the area

When planning a trip to Turkey Bay or Wranglers to trail ride during times of excessive wet conditions, it is recommended that visitors “Call Before You Haul.” Call 270.924.2000 and press 1 for updates on weather related closures, or check the Alerts page on the Land Between the Lakes official website.
