Every time I go to Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge I almost always see deer. Every once in a while we will see wild turkeys as well. Great place to go camping as well.
My husband and I recently drove through part of this wildlife refuge. We went right at noon so we did not see much wildlife. However, the short loop that you drive through is quite lovely and is a great place to spend the afternoon. We stopped for a picnic along a small lake and it was quite peaceful. Only the... 更多

Some times we have seen owls and hawks, but not this trip. Drive very slowly and you will see deer in the woods,... 更多
This is some of the most beautiful space to explore! The Visitor's Center is staffed by those in the know. The displays are awesome and are fun teachable moments. Such a great spot for children and adults to explore.
