Welcome to Crescent Lake
National Wildlife Refuge
This little known refuge located in the Nebraska panhandle consists of 45,818 acres of rolling sandhills, the largest continuous sand dune area in America. The grass covered dunes were created from the wind blown sands of an ancient sea.
The twenty-one lakes and numerous ponds are supported by an aquifer lying below the hills. The grasslands range from the densely vegetated meadows to the sparsely covered choppies and support a wide variety of wildlife.
