General Information

The Modoc National Wildlife Refuge is located to the east of the Modoc National Forest. The two are sometimes confused, but the wildlife refuge is a separate piece of land dedicated to wildlife and some types of hunting. It is much smaller than the actual forest, spanning just over seven thousand acres.


We currently do not have any record of trailheads in this park.

The refuge was established in 1961 to help manage and protect migratory waterfowl. Funds available from the Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act helped purchase this refuge.





The refuge was originally created to protect the Waterfowl population. So obviously there is a large number of Waterfowl in the area. There are many more additional types of birds that make their home or migrate through the area.
