The founding of Uggerby Klitplantage started in 1894 and the last areas were acquired in 1955.
Uggerby Klitplantage covers the entire Uggerby dune and borders to the south on farming areas and to the east on Uggerby Å (stream). Especially the southern part is very distinctive with steep banks that lead to the stream. On West, the plantation borders up to Lilleheden Klitplantage in the south and in the north it borders to a dune area, which never was planted but houses a few holiday homes. Two roads to the beach, the easterly Tolstrupvej is public, bisect the plantation.
