Milford Neck Wildlife Area consists of six large land tracts totaling almost 5,500 acres of wilderness near Milford and the Delaware Bay. Among its attractions is a 350-acre open space for training hunting dogs.

The easiest way to access this reserve is from the intersection of Route 1 and Tub Mill Pond Road. This is easy to spot thanks to Meding & Son Seafood, a popular business that features a large propeller in its front lawn. Simply turn east at this landmark and you will find the Penuel Tract''s parking lot approximately one mile down on the left-hand side. And less than a half-mile from that you will also find the Leroy Coverdale Tract.

Before your arrival, we recommend you consult the current schedule of hunting seasons. Or, if you''re ever in doubt, simply wear hunters'' orange or other bright colors. Also, please be advised that wildlife areas typically keep signage to a minimum, so a compass or GPS unit may be a wise thing to pack.
