We are located in the northeast corner of Washington state on the Flowery Trail-Little Pend Oreille side loop of the International Selkirk Loop which is a scenic driving tour. Once on the Refuge you can continue driving on our Auto Tour Route or hike one of our trails or walk looking for birds or taking photos. The Refuge is a great place to enjoy nature.


Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge is federal land so a state issued Discover Pass is not required. The easiest way to get to the Refuge is to start from downtown Colville, Washington. From Main Street (Highway 395), follow Third Avenue (Highway 20) for 6 miles – you will be traveling east toward Tiger, Washington. There is a brown and white sign at the intersection of Main and Third labeled “Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge 13 miles.” Just after passing White Mud Lake, make a right turn onto Artman-Gibson Road. The sign states the Refuge is 7 miles away. Travel 1.7 miles until reaching a 4-way intersection. Turn left onto Kitt-Narcisse Road and follow it for 2.2 miles where the road forks. Take the right fork onto Bear Creek Road (a dirt road), and follow it for 3.3 miles. The Refuge headquarters is a brown log building with a flag pole in the yard.
