Mac Coon Access
Mac Coon Access is located five and one-half miles north of Lockridge just east of Willow Blvd.
This recreation area got its name from an old game Warden, Mac Coon, who worked in the area back in the 1930's and 40's.
Purchased by the Department of Natural Resources in 1945, a renewable 25 year management-lease agreement allows the Jefferson County Conservation Board to develop and manage this area.
Since 1973 numerous improvements have been made to Mac Coon Access which includes: construction of restrooms and a shelter house, installation of playground equipment, drilling a well for potable water, developing a campground equipped with electricity and providing a concrete boat ramp and fish cleaning station.
A trailer dump station and rural water was added to Mac Coon Access in 2006.
Mac Coon Access not only provides fishing opportunities with the presence of the Skunk River, it is also open to public hunting from August 31 to May 15. In 2006 all of the camping sites along the river were updated with 50 amp service. See the Fishing & Hunting page
