Western Portion of Knoxville Wildlife Area Reopens to Public Access

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has announced that the western portion of the Knoxville Wildlife Area in northeastern Napa County has reopened to public access.

The portion of the Knoxville Wildlife Area west of the Berryessa-Knoxville Road has reopened to all authorized public use. The portion of the Knoxville Wildlife Area east of the Berryessa-Knoxville Road will remain closed to public use due to the County Fire, which has burned more than 6,000 acres of the wildlife area. It is unknown when the eastern portion of the wildlife area will reopen to the public. The entire wildlife area is being evaluated to determine when and if additional closures or reopenings will occur.
