Shooting & Overnight Camping Restrictions


Changes at the Millville-Providence WMA


The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has implemented two changes at the Millville-Providence Wildlife Management Area that should make it a safer and more enjoyable place to visit.


Effective immediately, the following activities are no longer allowed along the Millville Canyon and Providence Canyon roads within the WMA areas:


  • Target or trap shooting

  • Overnight camping


"No Shooting" and "No Overnight Camping" signs have been posted identifying the areas that are closed. These restrictions are ONLY effective in the Wilderness Management Areas that are managed by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. Shooting and camping is NOT prohibited on National Forest land. 


  • The Providence Canyon roadway closure area is for the first 1 mile: from the WMA western canyon entrance, east to the USFS boundary.


  • The Millville Canyon closure area is for the first 1/2 mile of roadway, from the WMA western boundary, east to the USFS lands.
