  • September is perfect for the crane train observation. Already on the way to Fairbanks we could see many V-formations in the sky. Great Habitat with many walking paths. Suitable for all ages. Nice Infohaus to the parking lot.

  • When I think about our day in Fairbanks, the refuge is right at the top of my favorites. We only had an hour, so we chose to walk the Boreal Forest Trail. It was so incredibly peaceful, with lots of y...  more »
  • The backdrop of the old Creamer's field barns are spectacular for the many varieties of water foul that migrate there every year. I personally have gotten some excellent photos of birds in flight. A g...  more »

  • A great place to be in spring when migratory birds like ducks, geese, sandhill cranes and trumpeter swans arrive for the summer. Also a great Sandhill Crane festival in the fall as the cranes gather before their exit before winter.
  • Great for a little walk! Saw some marmots and a lot of birds. Some of the walkways are near-collapsed (which is a problem when there's nothing but lake underneath).
  • Great for birders with some very nice short trails (there's a lot of benches).
  • Maybe I am biased because I grew up down the street but this is my number 2 favorite place in The Fairbanks area. Number one of you exclude anything more than 30 minutes away. As a kid and adult I've walked here, walked talked dogs, seen moose, fell in love with birds, skied, taking pictures(as the subject and the photographer), watched fire works, gotten stuck in the mud, meet new people, "ahh'ed" over God's wonderful creation. Whether you want to take a walk or just sit and watch this is the place to be. If you can, make even a small donation to the preservation.
  • Great set of trails year round for walking, skiing, or biking (couple trails are no bikes allowed) and it has great connections into the Mushers trails. Also there are birds. Lots of birds.
