Facility Rules and Policies

To protect wildlife habitat, all foot travel on the Refuge is limited to one area - the established parking area and short trail to a viewing deck. The remainder of the Refuge is closed to public access. The following Refuge regulations also apply:

Off-road motorized vehicle travel is strictly prohibited.

Pets must be under the owner’s control at all times. Pets can disturb nesting birds, and if out of control they can harass or disturb other wildlife.

Searching for and collecting antlers, arrowheads, rocks, and other artifacts is a violation of the Archeological Resources Protection Act and is prohibited. 

The Refuge does not provide trash receptacles. You are responsible for disposing of your own trash. Do not leave anything behind. Pack it in, pack it out. 

Drones may not be launched, landed, or flown over refuge lands.

Hunting and fishing are not permitted.
