The 200-acre Dillacort Canyon unit is within the Klickitat River Canyon eight miles downstream from the Mineral Springs unit. It is owned by BLM and managed for fish and wildlife by WDFW. Habitat types include timber, grasslands and riparian areas. Access is from State Highway 142, though most of the unit is located on the opposite side of the river and highway, which limits fishing and hunting use.
