Market Lake Wildlife Management Area at 5,071 acres (20.52 km2) is an Idaho wildlife management area in Jefferson County north of the town of Roberts.[1] The WMA was established in 1956 to restore a portion of Market Lake for migrating and breeding waterfowl.[2]

Water in the WMA comes from natural springs and artesian wells beneath the igneous rock.[3] Mammals seen in the WMA include mule and white-tailed deer and small numbers of moose.[4]
