The 56-acre Upper Deckers Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA) ranges across gently rolling upland forest and a 16-acre manmade wetlands near the source of Deckers Creek, a tributary of the Monongahela River. The area supports hunting for waterfowl, though hunting is limited as a result of the small size of the area and its proximity to residences. Two impoundments in the wetlands accommodate fishing for bluegill. Camping is prohibited in the management area.
