NEW 2024-2025 ACCESS PASS

 A Fort McCoy iSportsman Annual Access Pass is required for all recreational activities on Fort McCoy. To hunt, fish, or trap on Fort McCoy also requires the appropriate Fort McCoy hunting, fishing, or trapping permit, and the appropriate State of Wisconsin license(s) and stamp(s). The requirement for an Annual Access Pass and Fort McCoy Fishing Permit is waived for anglers during the WDNR Free Fishing weekends in January and June.  All recreational users must register for an iSportsman account before an iSportsman Annual Access Pass is issued online through the iSportsman system. Each individual account needs to be updated/renewed on an annual basis. An iSportsman Annual Access Pass is not required for non-hunting/fishing activities within the Pine View and Whitetail Ridge Recreation Areas or the Cantonment Area. Get the new Access Pass by logging in to your iSportsman account.
