I been coming here to photograph and get my nature fix for years now, and I never get tired of it. The refuge is located conveniently between Tacoma and Olympia and makes for a nice escape from the city life. $3 to park and enjoy this place is hardly enough to complain about. On the weekends it can get a little crowded, so come early.

For $3 self-paid fee, you get to access an amazing wildlife sanctuary with lots of birds and amphibians, a ~2.5-mile boardwalk, and cool fresh air. It's a place where you get to take your busy schedule down a few notches and just enjoy Mama's Nature. Thanks for keeping this place clean and unspoiled.

It was a cold cloudless day with a daytime high temperature of about 30 degrees. The fall leaves had mostly fallen and the wooden bridge-ways were covered in frost. The Refuge was active as the migration was well underway. I photographed Mallard, Widgeon, Snow and Canadian geese, an American Bittern and finally a Blue Heron. It is hard to imagine a better place to come and spend a morning or afternoon exploring all that the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge has to offer, especially in the light of the meager $3.00 price of admission!

A very beautiful place with secluded boardwalks and lots of animals including river otters, long-tailed weasels, and even the elusive mink. Parking can be a trick at times.

It's a beautiful place to visit. We did not see any wildlife on the day we went. Trails are mainly boardwalks. Along the way we plucked wild berries and they were really good to eat. We came across two barns. Trails are not long.

Fantastic experience with stunning view along the trail. We saw a small snake, hundreds of all kinds of birds, crabs, several herons, and a family of cute beavers. Definitely gonna go back again, probably different season.

No dogs allowed but still a beautiful, easy hike with honey buckets available on the trail.
