Dates Open: This WMA is NOT currently open to the public.


The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission Authorized the New Yoakum Dunes Wildlife Management Area in Panhandle of Texas on November 6, 2014.

In coming years the agency plans to offer public recreational use of the WMA, including hunting, birding and other compatible recreation. However, decisions about what degree and how much of the WMA may be open to the public won’t be possible until after on-site resources are fully assessed.
