Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, a haven for migratory birds and other wildlife, lies on the Big Mineral Arm of Lake Texoma, on the Red River between Oklahoma and Texas. The refuge is made up of water, marsh, and upland habitat and visitors can hike, observe wildlife, hunt, fish at various times throughout the year.

The main focus at Hagerman NWR is providing a winter home for thousands of waterfowl. Foremost among the waterfowl are Canada geese. During fall, winter, and spring, numbers can reach 7,500 or more. Other geese include white-fronted and snow geese, with a scattering of the smaller Ross' geese.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
October 15 Wonderful diversity of water birds by Kathy
Cormorants, pelicans, herons, many kinds of ducks, and several kinds of shore birds; also a variety of hawks- quite an experience this past spring. Well worth many visits.
November 13 Geese are coming in now by Dick
Drive along Wildlife Drive and see the large flocks of geese- more arriving daily - they browse in green fields awhile then go for a dip in Lake Texoma - stay in your car for best viewing!
October 12 Always find something to see there by Maggie
The recent rains have left lots of standing water but two trails are surfaced and hike-able! Hikers saw roseate spoonbill and osprey Saturday. We like the nature programs on the Second Saturday of each month.
