Public hunting lands in Meadow River WMA

The Meadow River Wildlife Management Area (WMA) protects 2,374 acres of wetlands, bottomlands, and gently sloping uplands in western Greenbrier County on the upper Meadow River for public hunting and fishing. Native game include deer, grouse, turkey, raccoon, woodcock, squirrel, and several species of waterfowl. A public wildlife-observation area has been established on the upper Meadow River in the WMA at Rupert. Camping is prohibited within the whole of the WMA.

The preserve is accessible from the Dawson and Sam Black Church exits of Interstate 64 between Beckley, WV (25 miles west) and Lewisburg, WV (15 miles east). Large tracts may be reached by U.S. Route 60 (US-60) and Greenbrier County Route 60/18 at Rupert, WV. The area has preserved one of the central features of the Big Meadows, the upland of woodland and farmland in which the Meadow River heads.
