Stopped by the Refuge on Thursday, Sept 23rd and it was pretty quiet. Saw a couple of Ruffed Grouse and that was about it. Came back on Sunday and it was basically the same thing. Love the place but I think the rain was not helping the situation.

Huge wildlife refuge with a lovely 7 mile wildlife viewing drive. Trails & boardwalks throughout the park, but the black flies were prohibitive! We managed a 2+ mile on the main nature trail on our first early afternoon visit, but when we tried to return for an evening walk, the flies were just too much to bear. Wished we had full nets to cover our faces! Had to content ourselves with 2 drives along the designated road. The afternoon one was nice, but especially enjoyed our second one at sunset. The pools are lovely & we enjoyed seeing lots of Trumpeter Swan families & the always gorgeous Loons. Tons of other birds & several muskrats and chipmunks & squirrels of course. We were disappointed that the Visitor's Center was closed (we were there during normal hours), but the brochures were available & very helpful.

We had looked forward to the wildlife viewing at the national refuge. The reviews and photos were very encouraging. Unfortunately we were limited in our time and ability to revisit Seney during our time in the U.P. It was pouring rain and was pretty cold. Even though we visited in the late afternoon not long before sunset - the time when the park closes but also the time when wildlife-spotting is supposed to be most productive - there was almost no wildlife. We saw some Canada geese, a few ducks (perhap blue-winged teal), and many pairs of Trumpeter Swans. The Marshland Wildlife Drive through the small part to the refuge was enjoyable nevertheless. The loons had already migrated, it seemed, as had the sandhill cranes. If back in the area I would want to visit in the summer and hopefully during a drier day when we could take long hikes.

Trumpeter swans are the largest waterfowl in North America, with wingspans of up to 8 feet and weighing up to 25 pounds. The population at the Seney wildlife refuge had a dark brown coloration especially of the neck due to the tannins in the water.

Seeing the many trumpeter swans in just this small part of the refuge was a heartening sight, confirmation that the species, once down to about 70 individuals in the lower 48 (all in Yellowstone), had been restored to the point that with a population 63,000 they are designated “least concern” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Based on good reviews, we did the 7 mies drive. The scenery was beautiful, all the pools looked similar. We only saw swans. I see turkeys, ducks, goose, squirrels and birds quite often in my neighborhood. But there was nothing there except swans. I went in early October.
We did walk the trail, saw more swans than the drive.

We drove through since our route had us passing and it really is beautiful. We didn't plan and bring binoculars and didn't stop for long to explore which would be worth it if you want to see some wildlife. Still a scenic drive if you're just passing through. You enter on a long road then turn left to take the drive route.

Starting off at the Visitor Centre is great; the friendly staff are invaluable resources and are happy to answer any questions. There is also a gift shop, some taxidermy animals, activities - and a clean washroom (always important to find when travelling)! We watched an introductory movie at the visitor centre before heading out on the Marshland Wildlife Drive, a one-way loop on a narrow, unpaved road. We've done this loop a number of times and always find it to be peaceful. We like to drive very slowly and pull over to let others pass or to get out and have a closer look at the wildlife. Wildlife we've seen include loons, Canadian geese, swans, turtles, and beavers. There is a board at the visitor centre where you can mark your wildlife sightings; it's always interesting to check the board and find out about recent sightings. Bring your binoculars!
Admission is free. The refuge is open mid-May to mid-October.

This is a bit out of the way, but well worth the visit. There is a wonderful Visitor Center situated on one of the ponds for wildlife viewing, and an auto drive route around several of the other impoundments. When I was there I saw Trumpeter Swans, Loons, Canada Geese, Sandhill Cranes and a myriad of other waterfowl and birds. There are also a variety of mammals living on the Wildlife Refuge, but I did not see any that day. It is free to get in, and well worth taking the time to stop.

This is the perfect balance of nature and accessibility to nature. Being a National Wildlife Refuge, it's a specially protected area kept pristine for nature to be nature. This place also does a terrific job at exposing people to nature and getting us reasonably close enough to see it and enjoy and appreciate it.

The visitor's center is nice with taxidermied animals, a nice gift shop, knowledgable refuge staff, and a nature walk (beware on hot or buggy days). Kids who might be bored away from screens weren't. Stop here first and pick up activities for kids and wildlife checklists for any walking and driving you may do.

The Marshland Drive is a MUST DO. It's a seven mile nature walk, but in a car. The drive is super slow but any car can do it (no 4wd or orv needed). There are lots of places to pull over to get out and watch the wildlife so other cars can pass. I recommend driving very slowly with the windows down to see and hear everything. Do it at different times of day too: we saw different animals in the late morning than we did near sunset.

It was a little chilly so we decided it would be perfect to take a drive to through the Wildlife Refuge! Glad we did! It’s very beautiful through the trails. We didn’t see many animals, mostly birds but was still exiting! We also saw the two bald eagles nest, that was a first for us! Next time we will bring our fishing poles as the have areas for fishing. Be sure to stop in the visitor center to grab a map and some binoculars (it’s free to rent)!

We stayed in Gerfask since it was close to the refuge but we weren't very familiar with it until we visited in late June. We are very happy we went! The visitor center folks were friendly and very informative without being pushy and the visitor center itself was great as it prepared us for what we might see. We drove the 7 mile path since we had dogs with us and it was really hot but we would be very interested in biking it under other circumstances since we'd see even more. As we were told by those in the visitor center: take your time! We stopped often to take pictures and took almost 2-1/2 hours to go through the 7 miles. We saw a variety of wildlife but no sandhill cranes. We saw plenty of them along the highways (!) but not at the refuge. Strange birds!
