The scenic Marshyhope Creek, which winds through the quaint turn- of-the-century town of Federalsburg, forms the western boundary of the 3,800-acre Idylwild WMA in southeastern Caroline County. The area is a mix of agricultural fields, upland forests and bottomland forests, with topography ranging from flat to somewhat sloped. Some areas are wet year round.
