  • Bicycling

    Roads are unimproved. No paved paths.

  • Fishing

    A boat is a must for those who wish to explore this refuge. A marked canoe trail is open year round and canoes may be rented nearby.

  • Horseback Riding

    Horseback riding is permitted. Be aware that hunting season begins in the fall. Take precautions by riding in groups and wear hunter's orange colored items.

  • Hunting

    Small marsh pothole openings and hunting the marsh edge along the lake can provide good hunting for both dabbling and diving ducks. Canada and white-fronted goose hunting can also be good early in the season. Decoys and hunting dogs are highly recommended. Boats are the only way to access the area. This area provides a real opportunity to get away from other hunters and hunt the deep marsh. The primary species taken are mallard, gadwall, pintail, wigeon, green-winged teal, and lesser scaup.



Nearest main highway is US-97. Take 97 north from Klamath Falls.
