The WMA is bisected by Tillman Road, where one centrally located parking area is located. A second parking area is located on Bergtold Road at the north end of the preserve.

The preserve is crossed by several trails, including two loops of different lengths. A short section of boardwalk and a viewing platform are located by Bergtold Road. Parts of some trails are elevated on narrow boardwalks due to marshy conditions.

Permissible activities within the WMA include hiking, nature observation, photography, fishing, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing.
