Visitor Information

Public Use and Access

Access to the refuge is by small plane or boat, or by road access from the nearby communities of Tyonek and Shirleyville. There are no developed public use facilities on the refuge. The refuge is a popular waterfowl and moose hunting area in the fall. Fly-in sport fishermen enjoy the refuge lakes and streams in summer months. A number of commercial set net fishing sites are operated along the coast in the summer. Trapping occurs in the winter. The residents of the nearby community of Tyonek hunt, fish, trap, and gather plants and berries on the refuge. An oil pipeline and a gas pipeline cross the wetlands from West Foreland to Shirleyville.
