The Pedlar Wildlife Management Area is located on 766 acres (310 ha)[1] east of Blacksville in Monongalia County, West Virginia. The wildlife management area is divided into two parts centered around 5.5-acre (2.2 ha) Dixon Lake and 14.5-acre (5.9 ha)[1] Mason Lake, named for nearby Mason-Dixon Line.

Pedlar was deeded to the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources by Consol Energy and initially opened in 2004. Improvements to the lakes and a public shooting range at Mason Lake were completed in 2007.[2]
