Deer Flats is a great place to view ducks and geese in the winter and other birds, and during the summer to go fishing. The water can get a little "green" during the late summer when the water levels drop during irrigation season.

It's nice to go to in the winter for a walk. It quit and peaceful. Not loud like the summer time. You can take awesome pictures of the lake especially when it's frozen.

This place is relaxing and full of wonderful wildlife to see! We love strolling through and seeing the numerous birds. We have also seen on occasion deer, raccoons and yes a skunk.

What a great way to enjoy nature and a beautiful day. So many things to do and see at Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge. Multiple trails to choose from and you may even see a deer or two!

Signage to the refuge is fairly adequate, putting you on paved and maintained roads right to the front door and ample parking for visitors. If a visitor were to go to the station they would find courteous employees as well as local volunteers. The walking...More

This is a lovely oasis close to town and rightly popular with the locals. We enjoyed a walk through the visitor's center where we learned about the creation of Lake Lowell, the area wildlife and were able to watch nesting osprey through a high-powered telescope.
