My wife and I love nature and this was a really fun experience. We loved seeing all the wildlife such as, alligators, birds, turtles, etc. We wished we could have seen the bobcat and the other feline that the receptionists mentioned. It's really nice that you can drive around and stop wherever you want.

A hidden gem of a place not too far from Savannah. Nice little museum. Fantastic staff. The volunteer on duty was very knowledgeable and obviously passionate about the refuge and people's experience. Brochures provided are excellent. There are hiking trails and a car trail where you can get off and walk to view the wildlife. A good variety of birds.... 更多
This place is a wonder for history buffs and nature lovers. The stories behind these dikes and the intact cistern were a pleasure to find. Wonderful viewing for ducks, coots, herons, and of course alligstors. We had the luck of seeing a red tailed hawk and a gator with her three babies on her back! It's a nice walk -... 更多

We enjoyed the 4 mile drive, we even got to see 5 alligators and numerous birds. If you go, try to go on a warm sunny day. We drove through 2 times on 2 different days. The second, sunny day, we seen more wildlife.
Being a local, I visit the refuge two or three times a month. The scenery as well as the wildlife, changes with the seasons. I have photographed gators, water birds, birds of prey, wild hogs, deer and recently encountered a bobcat. Some trips yield better returns than others, but I always enjoy the visit!
November may not be the best month to visit, but I love all wildlife refuges. Alligators and ducks we there to be seen (once I knew the difference between 'gators and driftwood), butterflies and birds here and there. The Visitors center is small, mostly shop, but I like the skulls, turtle shells and displays. There is a board out front... 更多
I didn't know what to expect when I read about this place except to say I was intrigued. Most of the wildlife places we have visited included a variety of landscapes. Here it was low dense brush, swamps and canals with an occasional grouping of trees, mostly live oaks dripping with Spanish moss. So not exactly a place of beauty... 更多
