River Bend Wildlife Management Area is a 3,500-acre property located in Laurens County approximately 8 miles south of East Dublin. River Bend consists of two tracts. The North tract is located on GA Highway 199 at the intersection with Interstate 16 and the South tract is located 5 miles further south down GA Highway 199. This WMA offers excellent hunting opportunities for deer, turkey, small game, dove, and waterfowl.

Formed by a clear-water spring that flows up at the swamp's edge, Troup's Spring Lake provides ample stock of bass, bream, and other gamefish. A paved boat-ramp allows easy access to the pond, as well as hiking trail access to Pugh's Creek, which features pristine creek fishing conditions. The Waterfowl Impoundment features a boardwalk leading to an overlook platform with views of River Bend's cypress swamp landscape.
