Important Gate Information
At Hutton Lake NWR you may find the entrance gate closed in an effort to maintain the condition of the road. Unless posted as such, a shut gate does not mean a road is closed to public access. It is closed to vehicles. Unlike at other refuges in the Arapaho NWR Complex, you are welcome to proceed past a gate and up the road on foot. Compliance with signs posted to limit habitat disturbance is required.
White-tailed prairie dogs are a common sight at the Refuge. The so-called prairie dog was named for its barking call.
