The 2,215-acre Cecil H Underwood Wildlife Management Area (WMA) protects a forest of oak and hickory and cove hardwoods on steep to moderate slopes on the waters of the West Virginia Fork of Fish Creek. Game traditionally harvested in the management area includes deer, grouse, squirrel, and turkey. The West Virginia Fork supports fishing for sunfish, rock bass, and smallmouth bass. Camping is prohibited in the management area.
The Cecil H Underwood WMA is managed by the W.Va. Division of Natural Resources. The management area was so-named in honor of Cecil H. Underwood, who served as 25th and 32nd governor of West Virginia.
