Minutes away from downtown Newport by bicycle (using the recreation path from Newport) or automobile, you will find the precious Eagle Point Wildlife Management Area (WMA) at Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge, a 420 acre parcel located along the eastern shore of Lake Memphremagog on the United States-Canada border, in Derby Vermont. The WMA is located approximately five miles north of Newport City on the Eagle Point Road. It is owned by the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and managed by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department in partnership. 

The property consists of nearly a mile of lakeshore habitat, numerous wetlands, large meadows, hemlock and mixed forest.  It supports a great diversity of wildlife including aquatic mammals, waterfowl, grassland birds, and many other wetland and terrestrial species. The parcel offers excellent wildlifebased public use opportunities, and angling access to Lake Memphremagog.
