It is situated 90 miles (140 km) north of Las Vegas, Nevada in Lincoln County, Nevada. The 5,380-acre (21.8 km2) refuge was created on August 16, 1963 and is part of the larger Desert National Wildlife Refuge Complex, which also includes the Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, the Desert National Wildlife Refuge, the Moapa Valley National Wildlife Refuge, and the Amargosa Pupfish Station.
