The Chief Joseph Wildlife Area totals 14,055 acres in Asotin and Garfield counties. It is managed in two units - Shumaker and Grouse Flats.
New Area Added In January 2012, 2,200 acres in the Mountain View area in Asotin County were added to the Chief Joseph Wildlife Area and are now open for outdoor recreation. The parcel, along two miles of the Grand Ronde River and north along Cougar Creek, is phase one of a multi-year project to put a total of nearly 12,000 acres of the 4-O Ranch in public ownership for recreation and fish and wildlife habitat management. Many of the new property lines have been identified with “Wildlife Area” signs, but visitors should refer to this map.
