Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge is managed as part of a refuge complex. A national wildlife refuge complex is an administrative grouping of two or more refuges, wildlife management areas, or other refuge conservation areas. Typically, a project leader for a refuge complex oversees the general management of all refuges within the complex. Supporting staff are centrally located at the refuge complex headquarters. Arapaho NWR is the complex headquarters, at 953 Jackson County Road 32, Walden, CO 80480.
The refuges in this complex include Arapaho NWR, Bamforth NWR, Hutton Lake NWR, Mortenson Lake NWR, and Pathfinder NWR.
