Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge Reviews & Ratings

  • Nothing to see, just a few geese. the road was also closed for works Maybe a better time on another day. Staff wasnt that friendly, it looked like we we're disturbing her after asking if there we're any wildlife spots. She just answered. "They are everywhere."

  • This is a great place to visit. There is hiking , the museum and the drive through wildlife trail. We ride our bikes from Bonners Ferry and ride around seeing the sites, hike, and they've taken us through the museum, as well.

  • Love that I see deer every time we come. I am always hoping to see moose, but it's a very peaceful and relaxing drive through the refuge.

  • Beautiful year round. Motor car road closed in spring until the ground defrosts and dries. Walking allowed anytime. Lots of geese, deer. Farther north beyond the refuge several miles saw swans that are migrating. Also elk, deer and geese were nearby or with the swans. Be sure to spend time here!!

  • This is a beautiful place for a quick hike. I recommend driving or bicycling the loop drive, for guaranteed sightings of waterfowl and deer, and--if you're lucky--huge herds of elk in the fall.
