We've been visiting this refuge for at least 30 years, and it keeps getting more beautiful. A highlight on our most recent trip was hundreds of Indigo Buntings. Other birds that we don't see in the city included White-Crowned Sparrows, Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks, and Roufous-Sided Towhees....More

The visitor center is exceptionally well-stocked with guides and other information. We visit a lot of NWRs and state parks and I was really impressed with what I saw. And they actually had knowledgeable volunteers manning the desk! So often there's a person who knows...More

THE visiter center is small but very nice.We love the outdoor viewing area for birds. The auto tour takes a hour or so and geese, ducks ,deer are common, occasionally river otters can be seen. Very nice refuge.

Nothing like walking around and spending time with nature, and it's FREE! If you have extra time do some walking. Make sure you are out of the park before close as the gates I believe are automatic.

What a wonderful nature experience this was! Even though this isn't a park and so it doesn't have a lot of the usual park amenities (but yes, there are restrooms throughout), it was exactly what we wanted. My photographer husband was happy with the rustic...More

The park is gorgeous this time of year. If you're a local, it's nice and close so it makes for a great afternoon with the family or friends. Clean up after yourself and occasionally pick up a piece of trash you see. It will go...More

My wife and I traveled here in June and thoroughly enjoyed the refuge. This NWR is located in south east Indiana near the town of Seymour. There is no entrance fee but I would encourage you to purchase a current Federal Duck Stamp. Any NWR...More

This place is really beautiful, and you can drive through a lot of it. We saw baby turkeys crossing the road -- so cute! A definite place to check out when in Seymour.

I happened to be in Seymour for work and wanted to stretch my legs. They have a few shorter loop trails which were perfect. I just wish I had brought my fishing pole.
