War Horse National Wildlife Refuge

War Horse National Wildlife Refuge Review

In 1958 this 3,192-acre area was established as a refuge and breeding ground for migratory birds and other wildlife. The refuge comprises three units: War Horse Lake, Wild Horse Lake, and Yellow Water Reservoir. The three units are geographically separate, but all are part of the larger Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge, which encompasses more than 1 million acres along the Missouri River. Note that it's necessary to take gravel roads, which can be particularly tough going after a heavy rain or snow, to reach the fishing and wildlife areas.
