The Town of Sprague Welcomes ALL visitors to the Sprague (aka Mukluk) Preserve, but please obey a few simple rules:
  • Drive your car all the way down the dirt road (7/10 mile) and park near the cabin where there's room. Parking on the road means that other cars can't pass you.
  • Please obey the signs that say to keep out of certain areas where we are cleaning up the lead pellets from years of hunting. You will know these areas immediately by the cheery orange and yellow fencing (no, we don't like it either, but it does the trick.)
  • ATVs and motorbikes are prohibited. The area is patrolled and violators will be prosecuted.
  • Please respect this lovely resource and take out anything you bring into the woods - help keep our park gorgeous.
  • The Preserve is closed at sunset except to fishermen. Currently, the gate will be locked at sunset.
  • Take note of seasonal hunting provisions in the Preserve and dress/hike accordingly
