Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge
Featuring 11,000 acres of outdoor recreation opportunities, Hagerman NWR is an excellent destination for wildlife viewing, hiking, fishing, boating, and regulated hunting. In addition, the Friends of Hagerman offer many activities, events, seminars and volunteer opportunities. Refuge lands and lakeshores are open and accessible from sunrise to sunset every day of the year—even when the visitor center is closed. Restrooms are located at the Goode Picnic Area (near Haller's Haven Trail) the Visitor Center, Big Mineral picnic area (near Meadow Pond Trail) and Sandy Day Use Area.
