Featherfin Wildlife Management Area

Off Rt 460 bordering Appomattox and Buckingham Counties
Farmville, Virginia 23901


Featherfin covers nearly 2,800 acres in Prince Edward, Appomattox, and Buckingham Counties. Numerous forested ridges and small drainages merge with the Appomattox River along Featherfin’s 10 miles of river frontage. These forest habitats include both hardwood and pine stands. Many hardwoods stands were selectively harvested over the past 30 or 40 years, but mature hardwoods exist throughout much of the area. Most of the pine forests are composed of various aged loblolly pine stands planted on old farm fields as they were taken out of agricultural production. Diverse wetland habitats border the Appomattox River, including approximately 125 acres of low ground fields in the central part of the area.
