Points of Interest Great River National Wildlife Refuge is made up of three remote units along the Mississippi River. Fox Island and Long Island Divisions provide primitive opportunities to explore river habitats and wildlife by foot or boat. Directions to these Divisions are available by viewing the maps. The Delair Division is closed to the public as a condition of the purchase.
Wildlife at Great River National Wildlife Refuge flourishes due to the remoteness of most units. Many areas of the refuge are difficult to access due to road conditions or the need for a boat, but those that are open to public use provide generous opportunities for viewing wildlife.
