Mission accomplished... beautiful area for bird watching. We walked for awhile and saw a dozen or so Sandhill Cranes in the field and then flying overhead. It is a beautiful place for a walk, but be sure to spray repellent... the mosquitoes are really thick especially near trees and ponds. They seemed to have lots of activities for children... we...

Lovely trail paths. Clean, fresh air. Beautiful view. Wish we'd had more time to spend there. Watching the birds in the field was mesmerizing.

A few miles worth of flat trails. Good for non-hikers and children. A knowledgeable and avid bird enthusiast was at the visitor center to answer questions. You can buy a trail map for only $1. Never having been to a refuge before, wasn't sure what to expect. It's a large plot of land where birds are "encouraged" to stop. You... More

We enjoyed visiting Creamer's Field on a bright warm Sunday afternoon. There is an old farmhouse which was a bit interesting but mainly I enjoyed just walking the trails and being out in the open. We did see a few birds. We kept walking and eventually came to a whole other area where we sat on some benches by a... More

Creamer's Field is a delight no matter the season. The Friends of Creamer's Field put on wonderful programs. It is wonderful to be able to pull up any time of day and enjoy whichever flock is currently visiting the Refuge - Sandhill Cranes, Canada Geese, Swans..... The paths are gentle and most are wheelchair accessible. And best of all it... More

When we went to Ceamer's Field, we went for a walk around the grounds but did not see much. We only saw four types of birds: mallards, Canadian geese, pidgins, and seagulls. Not exactly what I was expecting as you can see those anywhere in North America. Along the walk, we started to get bit by many mosquitoes, and perhaps... More

It's beautiful in every season but prepare to wear water boots if it hasn't been extra hot out (part of it is a wetland after all). It's fun to see the wildlife and the purmafrost area is very interesting too. It is also a wonderful place for family pictures. I have a friend who did some here and they were... More

Great view of the birds. They were having a children's fun day, but parking was not well marked. Could use an additional restroom nearer the road by the viewing area. Good informational signs. Variety of birds. easy to view, but not too close to interfere with them. 3 year old really enjoyed seeing the birds. We were visiting grandchildren from... More
