Nature Tourism:
Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge offers excellent opportunities to see and enjoy wildlife.

Many of these visitors stop in nearby communities to fill their tanks with gasoline or eat a good meal and some stay in nearby hotels. The refuge promotes surrounding communities and encourages visitors to enjoy the many services and opportunities offered nearby.
