About Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge, Walden

The Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge is a United States National Wildlife Refuge located in north central Colorado. The refuge is located in North Park in central Jackson County south of the town of Walden. The refuge was established in 1967 to furnish waterfowl with a suitable place to nest and rear their young.

It is administered by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.

  • One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Go in August when the Rabbit Brush is in bloom. Lots of lovely colors - yellows, gray-blue-green sage, wildlife galore. You can't take a bad picture there because everywhere you turn there is another beautiful vista. Drive or hike - either way you will love the Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge.

  • A very peaceful refuge with TONS of wildlife. I've seen moose, pronghorn, coyote, elk, mule deer and whitetail deer, fox, voles, prairie dogs, golden and bald eagles, several types of hawks, plus dozens of migratory birds! There are some great views and a nice visitor center. I do wish there were more places to drive/walk around. There is a nice path among the willows to walk, and you often see wildlife along the path. The visitor center is full of information. It's a wonderful place!!
