“Excellent Birdwatching!”

Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Tule Lake NWR is worth the trip. It is much larger than I had expected it to be and the photo opts are endless. Take a day to tour there and the lava beds just south of there.

We stopped at the refuge headquarters on our way through the refuges (Tule Lake and Lower Klamath) where we found the ranger to be very helpful. She took us outside and set up a camera on a tripod so we could view baby owls nesting in the cliffs behind refuge headquarters. She gave us refuge maps and stamped our "passport" books and was generally very helpful. Off we went with our "birder" friends from Idaho, and that day we logged an impressive 80+ species of birds!!! The refuge roads are kept in good condition so you won't have any trouble even in a non-4WD vehicle. Watch out for baby ducks and geese in the roadways and go slow. And don't forget your camera!

We got to see the difference in how the enlisted men and the internment people were housed and how they were treated. It's very sad.

I loved the peace and quiet there. Well it wasn't entirely quiet, the birds there were making a lot of noise! But when you talk about getting away from it all, this place certainly qualifies!
