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 Visitor Center, the Goode Day Use Area (near Haller's Haven Trail), the Big Mineral Day Use Area (near Meadow Pond Trail), and Sandy Day Use Area.
