Overview

Wild Rice Lake National Wildlife Refuge is located in the southeast corner of North Dakota, only an hour and a half southwest of Fargo, North Dakota. It is an abandoned river channel that does not provide good waterfowl habitat. The US Fish and Wildlife Service only controls the water levels and the hunting through an easement.

If you find yourself in the area, Fargo is worth exploring. Founded in 1871, Fargo is the crossroads and economic center of southeastern North Dakota and a portion of northwestern Minnesota. Fargo is a cultural, retail, manufacturing, healthcare, and educational hub for the region. Fargo is home to North Dakota State University.
