Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge, Fairbanks Reviews
Unfortunately only Outhouse bathrooms near The Visitor Center Center, but for some reason the ones by the viewing deck were locked? The grounds are beautiful, we saw lots of ducks and geese. The Visitor Center building was suffocatingly warm, I took a few pictures inside but couldn't enjoy really looking at everything since I could hardly breathe. It was only about 50° outside. I came from Texas to Alaska to enjoy some cooler weather!
My friends and I were enjoying a walk around the property until we saw a pigeon tied up as live bait. The predator should be able to catch the prey on their own. If needing to observe the act, there are better ways to achieve that objective. The lack of compassion from the staff that explained what was going on with the wildlife and live bait was horrendous. Seriously disappointed by the entire ordeal.
Beautiful field, wetland, farm, and forest where you can view birds and wildlife. The birch boreal forest trail is definitely worth a stroll. The paths are well maintained with a boardwalk over the wet portions. It's peaceful and flat. There is a nice lookout to view the forest. There is parking and bathrooms.
Love walking the trails here. Plenty of places to stop and rest, observation points and educational signs. The birds are a must see when they come through town.
Birds flock here from Hawaii, you should come, too. Beautiful country walks all summer. Fun, frolicsome skiing all winter. This historical dairy is not to be missed.
