I agree with all the other reviewers. I would just like to say there are miles of trails available for the handicapped. Paths are designed for wheel chair use. For example,just east of the visitor center there is a paved walking path to a Bird observation Booth. This would be a boon to a family with a handicapped child. Birds... More

The Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge is a very large area around Lake Lowell. It is all very pretty conservation land. My favorite part is the education center and their activities. We attended walks, classes and tours about water fowl, bats, insects, conservation and other topics. The kids were educated and entertained. This is a fun and valuable learning place.... More

The fact is, there are several areas known as Deer Flat something or other around lake Lowell and beyond, so it is somewhat confusing when someone talks about "Deer Flat NWR" because it might be any of them. I went most recently to the damn at the end of Lake road off of Roosevelt. There is a boat launching facility... More

Love the lake, great fishing, boating, duck hunting, pheasant hunting or even deer hunting if lucky enough to draw one of the few tags. It is a great picnic spot with good facilities. Come fairly early as it can get crowded on the best weekends, early to get a picnic table or launch your boat. The US Fish and Wildlife... More

I enjoy the refuge. There is quite a bit of wildlife to be seen and trails to run along. As an avid runner I look for places that are calming and bring me back to nature. An extra gold star for the refuge being close to home and on the lake. If you are there in the morning the trails... More

Nice place to see many varieties of birds, ducks and small mammals. Get there early before the personal watercraft folks get started. Walk around the lessor traveled paths for a real treat.

The Treasure Valley is part of the great flyway for migrating birds so there is a no-stop, year-round, ever-changing avian population to observe. Lake Lowell is a popular boating and fishing spot, so the refuge is not exactly isolated.

I rode my bike around the lake and Deer Flat - nice, but didn't see much of the lake. 27 mile ride on "chipseal", which makes for a rough ride. I was hoping for a path rather than riding on the road. Needs more bathroom facilities.
