Milford Wetlands

In the northern reaches of Milford Lake, next to the Republican River, is the Milford Wetlands Area. The wetland cells consist of earthen embankments, rock covered spillways. The wetlands provide a consistent, quality habitat for migrating species and increase local populations of wildlife.
Waterfowl, shorebirds, wading birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles, and mammals make use of the areas for breeding, nesting, feeding, and resting. Bird watchers as well as naturalists, fishermen, and hunters who visit the wetlands will enjoy a unique opportunity to experience nature.

There are eight wetland cells surrounding the refuge area. They are primarily filled with natural vegetation but there are a few that are comprised of flooded food plots. Its location within the Central Flyway ensures plenty of opportunities to view and photograph a wide array of waterfowl and shore birds during the spring and fall migrations.

If you're a waterfowl hunter, you'll find plenty of area for hunting. Be aware, a large section of the wetlands is for "Youth Hunting" only.
