Great visitor center and programs within. Nice drive thru refuge. Variety of bids changes with season. Guided walks in summer
This is an amazingly abundant area for birds and waterfowl. The Visitor Center is fun for all ages and the road leading to the "loop" is a wonderful bicycling road. Very flat and a good length. The refuge is itself a great place to see birds that are migrating through the area as well as resident fowl.
Well, if our beloved government Congressional delegations ever get their act together and reopen this national treasure, be sure to stop at the visitor center to check out all of their displays, watch the movie, and visit the gift shop for lots of great books and the best selection of quality jigsaw puzzles I've seen in a long time (yes,...

Really wished I could have travelled the refuge but the government got in the way. I did travel as far as the locked gates and that did give me a taste for what it was like - lots of birds, including cranes and curlews, beautiful views across the wetlands to the mountains.
This refuge has a new and beautiful visitor center close to the interstate. We stopped in to view the displays along with a movie they had. Unfortunately, the major part of the refuge is a further drive so instead we had to move on.
State of the art visitors center with movies, hands on exhibits for kids. Lots of special events. Newly paved road creates easy access for all to see so many birds on the refuge. Spring and fall migration seasons are the best, but there are birds and other wildlife out there all year round. Guided tours available and many educational activities... More
Nice hiking trail around the refuge. The educational center is nice with lots of activities for children. No entrance fee but if you enjoy the refuge consider making a donation or purchasing in the gift shop.
Saw a lot of birds many different species including some grebes doing their dance. I had not seen this in the wild before. Almost no people so could drive as slowly as we wanted and stop whenever we wanted. The education center is well done and the dvd is excellent
The Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge was established in 1928 on a delta of the Bear River in the Great Salt Lake. Thousands of birds are attracted to the refuge each year. Each season offers its own variety of bird species & wildlife. It's one of our very favorite places to go. There's a nice education center on the east... More
In February this was covered with snow and ice, but even then we saw hundreds of pheasants, blue herons, 3 kinds of hawks, bald eagles, and misc. ducks, deer, and small brown birds. A huge porcupine and a busy skunk showed themselves on a ridge and quickly hid. A worthwhile loop road and a well-designed visitor center make this worth... More
