The Sacramento-Wilcox Game Management Area was acquired by the Game Commission in 1948 with funds apportioned to the state through the federal excise tax on firearms and ammunition.

The Area serves primarily as a waterfowl refuge, and public hunting area. A game farm, which holds pheasant stock through the winter months is also located on the property.

This state special use area encompasses 2,313 acres of game-rich land with approximately 40 percent of the acreage consisting of lake or lagoon. The remainder is in diversified cropland. The topography is typical of the rainwater-basin country - miles of relatively flat tableland draining finally into a lagoon.
