Description: 5000-foot elevation. 3100 acres provide a sanctuary for waterfowl and shorebirds. The flat tableland creates a large floodplain for Camas Creek, and in the spring, a shallow lake averaging 12 inches deep attracts shorebirds and migrating ducks and geese to the nesting areas. By mid-July the area has dried out and the birds have left. Depending on water levels, the camas lilies bloom profusely in late May, creating a sea of deep blue blossoms. This land had been decimated from overgrazing, and is slowly being reconstructed to provide more brooding habitat and cover for nesting. During the spring, the area come alive with droves of waterfowl, cranes, egrets, stilts, and other shorebirds. Songbirds are attracted by the insects, including swallows and wrens. Falcons and hawks hunt the waterfowl. Grouse and partridge are common year round in the drier areas. Mule deer and a few antelope and elk graze in the cool mornings and evenings. Late season waterfowl hunting and upland game bird hunting is spotty. Good hunting for small game.

Location: Take exit 157 off I-84. Go north 35 miles on ID 46, then west 13 miles on ID 20. The entrance is right past Corral.
