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.

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,

While driving in Fairbanks stop at the Waterfowl Refuge. It is worth a 30 minute stop to see the many birds.

This was a fine place to be if you had children (we did) and need a little space to run around. We were not overwhelmed with the variety of birds or bird activity but we were not there during migration season. So that's to be expected. Nice easy, level hiking trails with a few observaton platforms.

We've gone to Creamer's twice now and my kids love walking the trails and watching the birds. It's a great place to just go and have a family stroll and take in some of the beautiful Alaskan sights!
