Hutton Lake National Wildlife Refuge

Contact Info
Laramie, WY


Hutton Lake National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) was established in 1932 primarily as a resting and breeding ground for migratory birds and to provide a haven for resident wildlife. The Refuge is located in the southern part of the Laramie Plains, a montane, park-like geographic area surrounded by mountains in southeastern Wyoming. The Refuge, at an elevation of 7,150 feet, includes 1,968 acres of greasewood and grassland uplands and marshlands. There are five small lakes on the Refuge (Hutton, Creighton, George, Rush, and Hoge) which were developed from natural sumps. A large variety of waterfowl and water birds can be seen on the Refuge during spring and fall migrations. Raptors and pronghorn use the Refuge year-round. The Refuge is not staffed and is a satellite of Arapaho NWR.
