Visit Us

National Wildlife Refuge System lands offer us all a chance to unplug from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with our natural surroundings. There are currently no accessible roads or hiking trails on the Refuge. In fact, much of the Refuge is part the larger lake and surrounding wetlands due to the prolonged high water levels in the Devils Lake Basin


Visitors to Lake Alice National Wildlife Refuge are invited to participate in hunting and ice fishing activities according to Refuge-specific regulations. Download a copy of the Lake Alice Hunting and Ice Fishing Information and Map for details.

Other Facilities in the Complex

Lake Alice National Wildlife Refuge is part of the Eastern North Dakota Complex. A National Wildlife Refuge Complex is an administrative grouping of two or more refuges, wetland management districts or other refuge conservation areas that are primarily managed from a central office location. Refuges are grouped into a complex structure structure
Something temporarily or permanently constructed, built, or placed; and constructed of natural or manufactured parts including, but not limited to, a building, shed, cabin, porch, bridge, walkway, stair steps, sign, landing, platform, dock, rack, fence, telecommunication device, antennae, fish cleaning table, satellite dish/mount, or well head.

because they occur in a similar ecological region, such as a watershed or specific habitat type, and have a related purpose and management needs. Typically, a project leader or complex manager oversees the general management of all refuges within the complex and refuge managers are responsible for operations at specific refuges or wetland management districts. Support staff may include administrative personnel, law enforcement, refuge manager, biological, and fire staff that are centrally located and support all stations within the complex.
