Current Refuge Closures

Visitor Center

The Visitor Center is currently closed. Please email or call 208-467-9278 for more information. 

While using the refuge, it is imperative that visitors follow state and local regulations and the guidance from the CDC, including practicing good hygiene, observing social distancing and staying home if you feel unwell. For more information, please see this "Recreate Responsibly Idaho" message from the Governor's office. 


We are proud to provide opportunities for safe, enjoyable outdoor experiences at many of our national wildlife refuges and fish hatcheries during the coronavirus pandemic. If visiting one of our locations, it is critically important to follow guidance from the CDC and state and local public health authorities on social distancing, avoiding overcrowding and exercising good hygiene. If a parking lot is full when you visit, please do not stop. We understand that the outdoors can help relieve stress, but these guidelines must be followed for our public health and safety. For now, refuge visitor centers and other public facilities are closed and most scheduled events have been postponed.
