Portneuf Wildlife Management Area at 3,104 acres (12.56 km2) is an Idaho wildlife management area in Bannock County near the town of McCammon.[1] The first land acquisition for the WMA occurred in 1970 from M.S. Bastian, and three additional parcels were acquired in 1974.[2]

The Portneuf River flows through the area, and its riparian areas attract diverse wildlife.[3] beaver, coyotes, yellow-bellied marmots, mule deer, and elk can be found in the WMA.[4]
