Thousands of Sandhill Cranes, ducks, shorebirds and some endangered Whooping Cranes use this important bird area. This 32,197-acre refuge located in north-central Oklahoma, is made up of a variety of habitats such as wetlands, prairie and about 12,000 acres of salt flats. Majestic and wide open, the salt flats are the only place in the world where you can dig for hourglass selenite crystals.

Explore this unique refuge by hunting, fishing, birdwatching, crystal digging, viewing wildlife and hiking. The refuge is free to enter and is open everyday from sunrise to sunset except for fishing and crystal digging (open April 1 through October 15). Pets are allowed but must be on leash. Make sure to check out the visitor center located two miles south of State Highway 11 along County Road 710.
