The refuge is located 20 miles southwest of Spokane and well worth the drive.  An abundance and diversity of wildlife and wildflowers awaits the traveling visitor.

Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge is an approximately 40-minute drive from Spokane, Washington. From Spokane, take I-90 west to the Cheney / Four Lakes Exit (exit 270).
