We lucked out on this day in that it wasn't raining. Can't recall where we were going to, but the refuge was a stop on the trip. We took a short stroll through the woods down to the lake, and while we didn't see any wildlife, this was a nice diversion. Very calm and peaceful.

Nicely maintained trails. The information and center is mostly geared towards children. We did not see any wildlife, except a few chipmunks and birds.

A very nice visitor center with interactive displays. There was also a short hiking route that went down to a lake. Staff was also very helpful.

We stopped here on our last day in the area. What a beautiful building and informative staff. The exhibits are kid friendly, but great for adults too. This is a nice free stop in Soldotna!

This is a great place for people of all ages. They have a really good visitor center for little kids to play in that is a super new facility. They also have a really close, short, easy hike that ends at a beautiful lake. We took a stroller on the trail and it was very easy to push. They have... More

I drove through here when I had a break on a recent work trip. The scenery is really beautiful and I saw some caribou. So I liked it a lot. It's only a couple hours from Anchorage.
