Franklinton Vlaie Wildlife Management Area (WMA) consists of about 195 acres of open water, wetland and upland habitat in Schoharie County. It was acquired from private landowners in the 1980's and 90's as part of a state-wide program to acquire some of the most productive wetlands in New York. It is located in the Town of Broome, about five miles south of the Village of Middleburgh. The pond and wetlands of Franklinton Vlaie are the headwaters to Catskill Creek. Parking areas providing access can be found along State Route 145 and Gates Hill Road. This parcel of public land affords multiple uses for outdoor recreation including hunting, trapping, canoeing, fishing, birding, and limited hiking.
