Day Trip Idea: Find Refuge at Mingo & Indian Hills Winery

Mingo National Wildlife Refuge and Indian Hills Winery

Located approximately 30 minutes from Poplar Bluff in Puxico, Missouri

 

While you might have come to Southeast Missouri looking for rest and relaxation, this is where nature came to find refuge.

Established in 1944, the Mingo National Wildlife Refuge has served as a resting and wintering area for waterfowl and other migratory birds. Mingo provides great opportunities to observe wildlife and enjoy the Bottomland forests, wetlands, and swamps.

With areas designated for hunting, fishing canoeing, wildlife viewing, and more, Mingo National Wildlife Refuge is a perfect place for habitat to meet humanity.

After taking in the sites and sounds of Mingo, ease on over to Indian Hills Winery for a taste of what the hills and vines of Missouri have to offer. Sample a wonderful selection of locally grown and bottled wines. Enjoy a variety of fresh appetizers, sandwiches, salads, pizzas, and more with live music echoing throughout the venue.
