Tips from foursquare
The visitor center exhibit is a must. You will learn a ton about the arsenal.
Over 8 miles of hiking trails! During the summer, the Refuge is open 6am-6pm Tues, Weds, Thurs, Sat and Sun.
Love this place. Hawks soaring and calling overhead, prairie dogs all over the place. There's even a herd of bison, accessible by a special tour on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Well worth the trip.
Take a moment to connect with nature and wildlife watch. Bird, mammals, plants and more...
The driving wildlife loop is open and worth the 9 mile drive! Bison, deer, owl, ducks!!!
