Overview

Hobart Lake is 2,077 acres located in Barnes County five miles west of Valley City. The Refuge is divided in half by Interstate Highway 94 running east and west. The Fish and Wildlife Service owns 277 acres in fee title and the remaining acres are covered by easement. Three nesting islands in the northeast corner of the Refuge that were constructed by Ducks Unlimited have been submerged since 1993.

The Refuge is a migration stopover for waterfowl. In addition, tundra swans frequently use the Refuge during spring and fall migrations. Much of the Refuge lands are cultivated by the owner; however, some waterfowl nesting and brood rearing takes place on portions of the Refuge. There are some limited opportunities for wildlife observation and photography from public roads around the Refuge.
