“Fall Foliage”
Reviewed 23 October 2012 via mobile

Went here a few weeks ago. We took a small walk then drove throughout the refuge. The scenery was beautiful as the leaves were changing. The roads can be a little confusing as all gates weren't open.

“A must visit”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

visited on june 13,2012, and what a great place to explore and learn. This place is great for children and adults alike. I was a little disappointed in not seeing this place with lots of people. On the other hand I was happy that my family could do a personal tour of the new visitor's center and speak with Edie and the manager without feeling rushed.My husband was able to give some tips to the manager as well. This is a must see place. The gift shop was reasonably priced. See you soon. God bless you..

“Whooping Cranes at Necedah”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Necedah National Wildlife Refuge gives you the opportunity to view rare whooping cranes up close--just beautiful! You'll find a great visitors center & gift shop with great interactive displays, all overlooking a flowage with viewing opportunities also for a variety of songbirds, sandhill cranes, bald eagles, golden eagles, ducks, geese, and often trumpeter swans. You'll also find unlimited hiking and biking and the chance to also see deer, wolves or bears. There are several great spots for fishing and picnicking too. Bring your binoculars! Afterwards, head SE to Castle Rock lake for some time on the water, a swim at one of the public beaches or to dine along the lake at the many bars or restaurants. Nearby Buckhorn State Park offers hike-in campsites along the lake. A perfect spot to spend a night or two.
