Not a lot of nature in downtown Savannah so we were excited to hear of this place. We only did the wildlife drive. Free! And we saw 5 gators (2 three to four footers, 1 baby, 1 five to six footer and one monster!). Lots of birds and Spanish moss. Beautiful setting. Drive slow, be responsible and respectful. Don't get... 更多
Didn't have much time, so we drove up around 7PM. Main gate at the visitor center was locked but don't let this deter you. We kept driving and came to the 4 mile drive thru the nature preserve. Saw many birds, egrets, and several gators. Only two pestering bugs. Was cooler this time of day and beautiful!!
We saw 3 alligators in the water. That was so cool to try & spot them from the car, then get out for a quick picture. It was a very hot day, so driving around to see things was a must.

We did see one, small alligator but the car behind said they'd just seen a huge one a mile back! Unfortunately, it's one-way around the drive or we'd have gone back... 更多
I've been here several times for the novelty of seeing alligators (yes, they can be encountered many other places near Savannah, but can just about always count on seeing them along the Laurel Hill drive) but it's only recently that I've stopped to learn some of the history of the Refuge. If you stop at the Visitor Center on US... 更多
This refuge has an interesting feature, that I haven't seen at any other refuges that I've been too: a informative radio station. So hop in your car, tune your radio in, and listen and watch! Once your done riding, take the opportunity to get out and walk some of the trails. From your car you can only see so much,... 更多
We were driving from Hilton Head to Savannah and turned into the refuge on a whim. We are so glad we did! We did not stop at the visitors center we tuned are radio to the station and headed down the 4 mile drive. At the first body of water we saw a large turtle and some fish. As we... 更多
