Nice place to stop and take in some local wildlife. Lots of information, large number of walking trails. The refuge allows hunting during certain seasons as well. You can see different wildlife depending on when you visit.

We've been visiting this refuge for at least 30 years, and it keeps getting more beautiful. A highlight on our most recent trip was hundreds of Indigo Buntings. Other birds that we don't see in the city included White-Crowned Sparrows, Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks, and Roufous-Sided Towhees....More

THE visiter center is small but very nice.We love the outdoor viewing area for birds. The auto tour takes a hour or so and geese, ducks ,deer are common, occasionally river otters can be seen. Very nice refuge.

Nothing like walking around and spending time with nature, and it's FREE! If you have extra time do some walking. Make sure you are out of the park before close as the gates I believe are automatic.

What a wonderful nature experience this was! Even though this isn't a park and so it doesn't have a lot of the usual park amenities (but yes, there are restrooms throughout), it was exactly what we wanted. My photographer husband was happy with the rustic...More

The park is gorgeous this time of year. If you're a local, it's nice and close so it makes for a great afternoon with the family or friends. Clean up after yourself and occasionally pick up a piece of trash you see. It will go...More

The best place to see the cranes is often on the west side of the refuge, sometimes just outside the boundary. Don't delay as they start migrating north the first of March. Stop by the visitor center and the friendly staff... More
