Special Directions

Turn north on Montana Highway 16 off U.S. Highway 2 at Culbertson. Follow Highway 16 north for approximately 22 miles until you reach the Refuge, which is marked with a large entrance sign on the North Shore Road. The condition of the gravel roads throughout the refuge is usually good, but may be temporarily closed if rain or snow causes the roads to become hazardous. During hunting season (September 30 - January 1), a portion of the Wildlife Drive along North Shore Road is closed to travel to protect migratory birds.
