Visit Us

National wildlife refuges offer us all a chance to unplug from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with our natural surroundings. At Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, each season brings new sights and sounds that can help recharge your soul and lift your spirits. Take a relaxing cruise along Wildlife Drive on the shores of Lake Texoma to watch wading birds stalk their prey or a northern harrier glide over marshes in search of small mammals. Listen to the sounds of songbirds and insects while you stroll along one of five hiking trails. Every visit offers something different than the one before. What might you see today?
