|Sherman Creek Wildlife Area consists of 8,782 WDFW-owned acres and 560 USFWS acres, all managed as one unit at the lower end of the Sherman Creek Watershed, which begins at the Kettle Crest and flows 24 miles down to the Columbia River. The wildlife area is located along the west side of Lake Roosevelt, in the eastern foothills of the Kettle River Range in Ferry County, about three miles northwest of the town of Kettle Falls.
The area was acquired in 1948 with Pittman-Robertson and State Wildlife funds to protect deer winter range and provide wildlife recreation.
Ponderosa pine and Evergreen ceanothus habitat types dominate, but a greater variety of conifers are at higher elevations. Aspen thickets are common around the many seeps and springs on the area. The most conspicuous wildlife are white-tailed deer, but the area supports a wide diversity of other species from bats to wild turkeys.
