We saw numerous small groups of tule elk, beaver, otter, and signs of coyote, raccoon, and other wildlife, including a variety of birds.This reserve is not too far from Fairfield. A map is provided to help you manage driving directions.
This reserve has hunting seasons for waterfowl, pheasant, Jr pheasant hunts, rabbit, tule elk, doves and falconry.
|Cormorants, when they swim you only see their head and neck. Their bodies are submerged!|

|Otters like this type of area and left tracks and scat (poop).|
|In the distance you see the huge windmills.|
Taking a trail guide book to help you and the kids determine what left the tracks makes a fun discovery adventure. The tracks are often fresh, so it is likely you'll have the joy of viewing critters.
|You can park and walk back into these areas along gated dirt roads. Watch out for ticks though!|
|People like to fish in this area. Bring the kids and the poles!|
Probably raccoon tracks. We also found rabbit, beaver, coyote, bobcat, otter and elk prints.
