Snoqualmie Wildlife Area
Stillwater Unit
This 456-acre unit is located three miles north of the town of Carnation. It was purchased in 1970 for hunting, wildlife conservation, and wildlife-related recreation. This unit contains a mix of active farm fields, forest habitats, wetland and stream drainages with hedgerows and fallow grassland meadows. Seasonal flooding is common and can inundate the entire unit. Stillwater has three small oxbow lakes – two that are connected to Harris Creek during high flow events and one that is a separate drainage. Harris Creek runs through the center of the property before emptying into the Snoqualmie River. This unit also has 8,500 feet of Snoqualmie River shoreline. Waterfowl and pheasant hunting are very popular activities as are wildlife viewing and hiking. King County Parks and Recreation Department owns and manages the Snoqualmie Valley Trail which skirts the unit’s eastern boundary. There are two parking areas a mile apart and adjacent to Highway 203 with informat ion boards.
