Great Swamp WMA

About this Location

Great Swamp Wildlife Management Area is composed of a multitude of parcels that lie in the relatively flat floodplain of the Mill River. The property mainly consists of a large black gum-pin oak-white oak swamp that contains red maple, black gum, swamp white oak, and pin oak. The surrounding uplands are made up of central hardwoods (oak, beech, birch) and white pine. Two parcels at the southern end of the WMA contain manmade ponds which are remnant borrow pits that were used during the construction of I-91.

The property can be accessed from State Road (MA-5), Swamp Road, and North Road. A grass parking area for two cars exists off North Road. Parking areas are not maintained in the winter.
