Visit the home of 163 species of bird and enjoy 19,000 acres of wildlife and wilderness. This shallow lake is surrounded by bogs, meadows, and marshes, making it the perfect home for waterfowl of all sorts. The Canada goose and sandhill crane especially like to stay here. Although parts of the refuge close during nesting times, Grays Lake is often a stop for wildlife viewing.
