  • The refuge is a fantastic place to see local wildlife, especially birds. The driving tour is well worth it, especially with the provided audio tour, but definitely try to visit in the summer months, when the walking trails are open and you're allowed to leave your car. All in all, it's a great way to do some birding or just enjoy nature without getting too far away from civilization.
  • I grew up going to this park when we wanted a short drive to nature. I believe it remains that way to today. Would recommend if you want to get away from it all.
  • Great place to hike. Been here at least 10 times since 2005. Hike is for beginners. No hard terrains. Easy to access. Parking was $3 last time I was there.
  • The refuge is one of the most beautiful scenic places you can visit, the variety of animals there is amazing and the ability to view some of these amazing creatures from your vehicle is breath taking. 10/10 highly recommend anyone that enjoys wildlife visit
  • Great way to get out into nature without having to carry a bunch of gear with you. Beautiful!
