      This wild and rugged land was once the preserve of nomadic hunters. Today this beautiful landscape - spanning almost 60,000 acres of mountains and grasslands - is home to an abundant wildlife population including a large herd of buffalo, some 300 Texas Longhorn cattle, 700 elk and countless prairie dogs. Activities include hiking, climbing, boating (there are five accessible lakes), fishing and hunting. There's a campground with good facilities, electrical hookups and trailer spaces.

      If you go:
      The visitor centre, located on the junction of State Highways 115 and 49, is open 9.00am - 5.00pm daily and showcases the habitat, flora and fauna of the refuge through dioramas, hands-on exhibits, art and taxidermy.

        We discovered this incredible NWR this summer on our way back West. The campground and showers were great. Deer were grazing in our campground loop. Saw the bison as we drove around the only downside was the proximity to Fort Sill, did hear some ordinance explosions while we were there. Once you know what it is, not a problem. Will happily return to this place!
