Morgan County

Widmeyer WMA (422 acres) Morgan County. The area is accessible from state Route 9/11 off state Route 9 about three miles north of Great Cacapon. The area borders about two miles of the CSX railroad track along the Potomac River and extends up the west side of Cacapon Mountain. The forest cover type is upland oak-pine mixture. Widmeyer is managed primarily to benefit wild turkey and squirrel. The deer and grouse populations however, are growing. Fishing opportunities do not exist on the area and camping is not permitted. Owned by WVDNR.
