The easternmost 3 miles of Prime Hook Creek at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge will be closed from Sept. 1 through March 15, 2019.

The closure is because of safety concerns due to hunting of teal in September in the adjacent Prime Hook State Wildlife Area, hunting on federal and state areas during the three seasonal splits of the waterfowl season and for other management purposes. The westernmost portion of the creek will be open year-round.

Access for boats and canoes is from the boat ramps located behind Brumbley’s Family Park off of Route 1 near Waples Pond and at Foord’s Landing in the refuge’s Headquarters Area.
