The refuge offers a self-guided auto tour drive, three hiking trails and observation decks with spotting scopes, all which provide visitors opportunities for nature study, wildlife observation and photography. All are open from May through mid-October during daylight hours. It's always good to call ahead if planning a trip to make sure facilities are open and available.
For a true bird’s-eye view of the refuge and surrounding area, visitors can climb the 100-foot tower located near headquarters. You can obtain a key for the tower during office hours during snow-free months.
