Togo Island is a peninsula (rather than a proper island) tucked into a bend in the Mississippi River, which produces the favorable conditions that allow wildlife to flourish there.
Located in Claiborne County, Mississippi, and Tensas Parish, Louisiana, Togo Island contains 9.8 miles of Mississippi River frontage and 2.7 miles of Big Black River frontage. Togo Island is just 30 minutes south of Vicksburg and 9 miles west of U.S. Highway 61. The all-weather access road from Highway 61 is maintained on a regular basis year-round.
The Togo habitat includes several hundred acres of:
- Bottom-land hardwood and other native species of timber
- Plantation cottonwood
- Land suitable for winter food plots and summer forage acreage
- Ox-bow lakes, sloughs, ditches, and cuts suitable for duck hunting and fishing
As well as several thousand acres of prime dewberry production, two irrigation wells with a power unit, and an extensive network of established roads, trails, and shooting lanes.
