Summer Lake 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. Viewing is not recommended during hunting seasons. Bird checklists and maps are available at the check station.

Nearby: Fort Rock State Natural Area, about 35 miles north, offers picnicking, wildlife viewing, rock formations and a hiking trail.
