- Wichita Mountains is the oldest managed unit in the Refuge System.
The prairie grasslands, rocky outcrops, and oak forest are a fitting setting for the prairie herds of American bison, elk, deer, and the Texas longhorn cattle.
Hicking, bird watching, photography, sigh-seeing, wildlife observation and guided tours are just a few public uses on the refuge.
