Permits To Visit Wildlife Management Areas in VA

by Staff on January 20, 2012

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries owns over 201,000 acres of land throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.  Those lands are in various Wildlife Management Areas and also in the state’s lakes.

It used to be that horse riders had no real reason to be concerned about getting permission to ride (or fish or boat also) on the DGIF managed lands.   But no more.   As of 2012, visitors to the DGIF properties are now required to have an access permit, which costs $4/day or $23/year.   Details of how to obtain the permits are in THIS LINK.
