White River National Wildlife Refuge

The remote forests of this 155,000-acre refuge stretch for 90 miles along the White River, and the refuge protects large expanses of bottomland hardwood forests, with Willow and Overcup Oaks towering above a rich, silty floor. Approximately 10 percent of North America’s Mallard population winters here, as do thousands of Snow, Canada, and Greater White-fronted Geese. The elusive Swainson’s Warbler is not uncommon, and Bald Eagles nest in the refuge. Though the area is not well developed for recreation, the roads are passable much of the time and there is a primitive campground.
