This is a great place to view ... whatever is visible at the time. We have been to Finley at various times of the year and have seen elk, deer, huge flocks of geese, ducks, hawks, gophers, ground squirrels, owls, wood ducks, and sparrows.

The structures are a bit aged, but the area and wildlife are great. Handicapped access is quite good with fishing. Also quite near is an archery range.

Finley wildlife refuge is internationally famous for birding. It also provides wildlife viewing (Elk, Fox, coyotes, etc), walking paths, hiking trails and a small gift shop. Come out and enjoy something different every season!

This place is excellent to escape the business of daily lives. You can find a new hike every time you go. It's private due to the fact that you can't bring pets or jog there. This keeps many people from heading out, but it's PERFECT...More

There is more wildlife packed into this small area than most people know. You MUST have binoculars, and a spotting scope is nice. The areas are large, and the viewing may be distant. Elk and Bobcat are common. Early morning and late afternoon are good...More
