“7,800 acres of wildlife running free”
Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge is located in south central Indiana. It includes 7,802 acres near Seymour and a 78-acre parcel, known as the Restle Unit, near Bloomington. Muscatatuck's mission is simple: to restore, preserve, and manage a mix of forest, wetland, and grassland habitat for fish, wildlife, and people. Special management emphasis is given to waterfowl, other migratory birds, and endangered species.Nine miles of refuge roads that are open sunrise to sunset seven days/week attract approximately 185,000 visitors to the refuge each year. Wildlife-viewing opportunities are excellent at Muscatatuck, and the refuge is known as an exceptionally fine bird watching site.
This nature park is perfect for a mild or adventurous day trip. There are plenty of places to pull off and go for short hikes. Good for kids and adults. You can drive the loop and see wildlife from your car or get out and walk among the trees.
This is one of my top 5 favorite spots to take nature photography and an easy walk.
Muscatatuck has an abundance of wildlife, especially waterfowl. It is a haven for birdwatchers and photographers alike. Even If you just take the auto tour, it is worth your time (Drive slow, you'll see more animals).
Lovely little place-not a lot of trails but a wonderful auto tour (if you take your time.) I suggest, if you’re here for only an afternoon, the wood duck trail.
