“Very nice place to visit! Don't miss the Prairie Dog Town on the Northest Portion!”

Muleshoe National Wildlife Refuge
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This place is great, especially if you want to see large populations of Sand-hill Cranes coming in to roost for the night during late fall and winter! There are two parts to it, one on the west side, that includes the park headquarters, then a bit further along the highway going north, back to the east side, there is a portion with a large Prairie Dog Town. A nice place to stop and do some sight-seeing along an otherwise - not too scenic area!

Lots of wildlife if you slow down and look. Mule deer in rut were awesome. Lucked into a bobcat. Not many cranes but a few. Very dry drought has taken its toll. Glad we have places like this so the animals can survive. Evenings were the best. Wished we had more refuges in the area

Interesting, but didn't see all that much, Maybe the wrong time of the year.

We walked around Paul's lake, and saw thousands of cranes. Just what we came for. It was windy, but the sun was shining and it wasn't too cold.

I enjoyed the nature center and the drives and the distant views, but there was no way to get close to see the cranes, field glasses are a definite must.
