Legislation has established entrance fees, also called users fees, for many National Wildlife Refuges, National Parks, and other federal recreational lands. The cost to purchase an America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass will go up on August 28, 2017 from $10 to $80. If you are age 62 or older you are eligible to purchase the card which is a lifetime card, so long as you don't lose it. You may want to buy one sooner rather than later. You can get more information at www.nps.gov.
The Refuge is open daily from dawn to dusk.
Due to coronavirus concerns, the headquarters building is closed to visitors. However, staff are working as usual and the Refuge is open for appropriate recreational uses including boating, hiking, fishing, biking, and birding.
The Refuge Manager Andrew Gude can be reached by text or phone at 703.622.3896.
