Went to Creamer's Field for a morning walk on our final day in Fairbanks in late September and was not overly impressed. The trail paths were a little run down and there wasn't much to see at this time of year, but I'm sure it is beautiful in the summer! A nice stop to talk a walk at, but nothing... More

The Creamers field is a very nice place to see birds and to walk through the arctic forest. We saw a lot of cranes and geese.

great outdoor space to watch winter migration of geese, cranes and other wildlife. Lovely walking trails if the weather is good (it was!) Need to allow at least two hours to take advantage of what is offered. A very nice Fish and Wildlife office next door.

We went to this field because we thought it was a good place to see birds. We did not realize the weekend we were there it was the Sandhill Crane Festival and there were thousands of sandhill cranes in fields spread out over a large area. It was awesome! I got some great photos with the cranes flying all around... More

We saw this place on a "Local Attractions" map we got at our hotel, and decided to check it out. It's really lovely, with lots of trails to explore and a very nice visitors center. It was mid September when we were here, and I think that was a bit late in the season. We saw lots of Canadian Geese,... More

Walking down the trail is a great experience that you don't want to miss in Fairbanks. It is also a perfect place to see some birds. It is nice to jog here in the afternoon.

Liked the history of the farm at the visitor center. What a great place to get out and enjoy some nature while getting some exercise. Anyone would enjoy this place.

For free, you cannot beat it. There are nice paths to walk, taking you though some wooded areas, as well as around the fields where various birds land to feed. Bring your bug spray, because you are outside in a wooded and wet area.

We go to the refuge about twice a month all year. Creamer's field hosts a learning festival in spring and a migratory bird festival in August. The birds are worth seeing all summer. Magnificent and captivating, the cranes are amazing for photographers, bird enthusiasts, and visitors young and old. There are multiple trails and a plethora of wildlife. The rose... More

We loved the walk in the fields and the bird watching, it was the time of many cranes that stopped in their way to the south before the winter and there were tens of them there. Very pleasant place for a walk,
