I have driven by this place more times than I can count & had never taken the time to drive through here. So when my grandkids were here we decided to drive in & take a look around. Even though we didn't have enough time to thoroughly enjoy & appreciate the experience; what we did see was wonderful. This place... More

They have so many options there. Great handicap trail for wheelchairs and strollers. Other trails for the more adventurous or wanting to see more. The road needed some help with all the potholes. But the trails were well worth it and a wonderful afternoon hike.

The Refuge has many areas to explore. If you are an outdoors person the variety of things to see and do are great. The Refuge has many great programs. That is its major strength I think. They have a great naturalist to help you understand if you have questions. When the cranes are present in the area this is one... More

Quite a bit to do here, bird watching, canoeing, fishing and hiking just to name a few. Very well maintained and easy to get around. The Indiana DNR hit a home run with this one. Trails were easy to walk. The only issue we had, and this seems to be an issue at a lot of outdoor places, there were... More

Great large area for wildlife. A huge amount of waterfowl and Bald Eagles. Fishing looked like it would be quite busy in the Spring and Summer. Several people were out today. Lots of hiking trials and ponds to explore. This was a good stop to relax in nature.

We were just passing through on Hwy 50 near Seymour, Indiana when we decided to stop by . There is a lovely Visitor Center with restrooms- however it was not open on a Sunday which surprised us as numerous people pulled in to check the place out while we were there. We took the Ridge trail by the Visitor Center... More

It's not the most exciting place for hiking but it's a beautiful nature preserve where the wildlife are first priority.

I am a local and have been coming here for years. Great walking paths/trails. You must check out Myers Cabin and the old graveyard. The cabin is a great place to take family pic.
