More Information

Unique to this Arapaho NWR Complex Refuge


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.
