While there is not much in the way of improvements here, this refuge is outstanding for being a spot where you can see an extraordinary range of bird species in just a short visit. Since Las Vegas is on a principal north-south flyway, this refuge just outside of town is a great place to go birding. There is a very good visitor center with knowledgeable staff and hands-on activities for the younger set. It's wide-open country, with a few timber viewing platforms at turn-outs on the road. Twice a year you can drive into the back country along the service roads and see ponds with birds you can't view from the usual spots. No picnic or camping facilities, and the fishing lake has dried up (though recent rains may have started to restore it).
