The E. E. Wilson Wildlife Area (or E. E. Wilson Game Management Area) is a wildlife management area located near Corvallis, Oregon, United States. The site was named for Eddy Elbridge Wilson, a member of the former Oregon State Game Commission for fourteen years before his death in 1961.[2][3] Wildlife visible includes blacktail deer, pheasant, and quail.[4]

The area occupies a section of Camp Adair, a decommissioned United States Army cantonment which operated during World War II.
