Including the lake, the entire area encompasses 5,300 acres. Of the 3,643 acres of land, the Enders Wildlife Refuge covers 2,146 acres on the western reaches of the lake. Hunting for big game, waterfowl, and upland game is allowed on public property along the river, west of the refuge, and on wildlife lands north and east of the protected area. Large flocks of mallards and geese winter on the open waters of the refuge and provide an excellent huntable population for waterfowlers. Totally, there are about 1,500 acres of wildlife lands, with managed habitat, open to hunters.
