The 49-acre Slatyfork Wildlife Management Area (WMA) ranges along a narrow strip of bottom running between railroad grade and the Slaty Fork of the Elk River. Game traditionally hunted in the management area include deer, squirrel, and turkey, though hunting is limited by the relatively small size of the area. More than 4.5 miles of the Slaty Fork in the management area accommodates catch-and-release trout fishing. Only foot traffic is permitted in the catch-and-release fishing area. Camping is prohibited throughout the management area
