Public Access

The Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area is managed by ODFW for the benefit of wildlife; public use is a secondary goal.  For that reason, access management on Ladd Marsh is a little complicated and changes seasonally.  For the most up to date regulations, please consult the current ODFW Game Bird Regulations either in print or on the ODFW web page http://www.dfw.state.or.us (click on hunting resources).  The following access and use restrictions apply.Parking permits are required for parking on Ladd Marsh. Permits are available where hunting licenses are sold. For information call the Ladd Marsh headquarters at: 541-963-4954.
