Fish Springs National Wildlife Refuge

Fish Springs National Wildlife Refuge is located on the southern extreme of the Great Salt Lake Desert. The natural springs have been essential in meeting human and wildlife needs over the past 11,000 years. This remote oasis in the desert provides a wonderful stopover for fall and spring migrating birds and recreational activities including hunting, wildlife observation, and photography. Fish Springs NWR is one of the most isolated Refuges in the lower 48 states. Visiting the Refuge requires a long drive on unpaved roads without nearby food, gas, or other services.
