General Information

Description - Creedman Coulee NWR is a 2,728-acre easement refuge which contains only 80 acres of Service-owned land. Much of the remaining acreage in private ownership is farmed.


Creedman Reservoir is a large retention reservoir with a recently reconstructed water control structure. A large drainage keeps water in the reservoir every year, although a portion of the water in the reservoir is encumbered by a private water right. A court case determined the water level that is reserved for wildlife habitat. Other than maintenance of the reservoir, very little habitat management is possible on this unit.


The refuge was established as a refuge and breeding ground for migratory birds and other wildlife. Migratory birds utilize the rather large Creedman Coulee Reservoir, while prong horns and coyotes inhabit the sagebrush grasslands and croplands surrounding the reservoir.

Location - The Creedman Coulee National Wildlife Refuge is located 30 miles north of Havre in Hill County, Montana.
