Lake Andes National Wildlife Refuge is a great place to learn about wildlife.

The Lake Andes National Wildlife Refuge public use area is open from sunrise to sunset.  This area may be closed at times during waterfowl hunting season if necessary to protect wildlife and habitat.  

Educational and interpretive facilities are available near the headquarters office. To help protect wildlife and their habitats, recreational activities on the Refuge are regulated. 

No overnight parking or camping is allowed. Camping facilities can be found in many of the State Parks throughout the area. 

Wildlife observation and photography are encouraged.
