The rolling hills and lush wetlands of Lostwood NWR attract dozens of species of waterfowl and shorebirds.

Getting there...

The Lostwood National Wildlife Refuge headquarters is located 21 miles north of Stanley, North Dakota, along State Highway 8. A large entrance sign can be seen just off the highway on the west side of the road.

The headquarters has a kiosk where you can start your visit by picking up brochures and wildlife checklists. Accessible rest rooms are available year-round inside the entryway of the Refuge office.

The office and visitor kiosk is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 4:30 pm year-round, except Federal holidays.
