Most of the 5,715-acre area is sandhill prairie with moderate to steep dune topography. There are also several miles of multi-row shelterbelts throughout the area, as well as windmills, solar wells, and hydrants that provide water for wildlife.
In spring, summer, and early fall, Pratt Sandhills Wildlife Area is an excellent place for wildlife watching. In addition to the game species mentioned above, songbirds, furbearers, crows, and a variety of other species may be found by the patient observer.
Township roads through Pratt Sandhills Wildlife Area are loose sand, so good judgement must be used to avoid getting stuck. Vehicle traffic is prohibited within the Sandhills, so a walk of up to two miles may be necessary to reach some of the more remote spots.
Six parking areas are provided on the main north south road through the area. Additional parking areas are illustrated on the attached map. Approximately 640 acres of the Pratt Sandhills have been designated a handicapped accessible area. Qualified individuals can obtain a key from the manager of the property to gain vehicle access. Call (620) 672-0779 for details.
