Summer Lake Wildlife Area
At the wildlife area: This is one of the best places in Oregon to view migrating waterfowl and other shore and waterbirds. The area consists of a large marsh with associated uplands. An 8.3-mile tour route bisects the area. The route is closed during hunting seasons (early October through late January) to provide refuge areas for waterfowl.
