  • 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!  more »
  • Good for bird watching and fishing/boating. Not good for swimming. The visitor center is a fun educational place. Not much shade so very hot  more »

  • It is very pretty here just not as many hiking trails. The ones they do have are a very short distance. It's still worth the trip though. The visitor's center was closed when I went. So there might be some things I missed that you can do there. The scenery is beautiful and the river is so pretty to look at. If you want just a quick little easy hiking trip in an afternoon this place is perfect.
  • I was amazed at the vast size of the reservoir. I only drove by it but the area is beautiful and flush with birds and other forms of wildlife. Would be ideal for birdwatchers and nature lovers. I am not sure if it is open to boating or fishing. Also bring a jacket because the lack of trees/vegetation makes for a windy experience.
  • It's nature, it's outdoors and learning things about all kinds of animals. You're learning about their habitats and how they live and what makes things survive and thrive. Great education for both kids and adults alike!
  • Easy to get to. Great for kids. Nice walking paths to fields and lake.
  • The kids loved it. The beach is a little painful on the bare feet but considering the price, it's a great place to go.
