Along with Green Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Gravel Island Refuge is part of the Wisconsin Islands Wilderness Area, which, at 29 acres, is one of the smallest wilderness areas in the country. The refuge is managed by staff at Horicon National Wildlife Refuge, in Mayville, WI. Public use is not allowed due to ground nesting by migratory birds and limited access.
