Cooper Wildlife Management Area
The Hal and Fern Cooper Wildlife Management Area covers 16,080 acres of northwestern Woodward and south-central Harper County. The area is primarily upland rolling sand hills with around 4,500 acres of river bottom. Mixed grass prairie and sagebrush is found on upland sites, interspersed with sand plum thickets. The river bottom is fairly open and consists of cottonwood, American elm, hackberry, and eastern red cedar interspersed with sand plum thickets, salt cedar, and mixed grassland. The Beaver River joins Wolf Creek to create the North Canadian river on the area. Five designated primitive camping areas are offered on the area.
