  • Beautiful place. Lots to see and do
  • They have a really nice visitor center that is friendly. The actual refuge is huge and you can see tons of birds when you visit during the right times of year/day.
  • It is a really peaceful place to go. A lot of different birds live there. I recommend to go at 5pm ish to watch the sunset.
