We passed this going into Savannah. It was well worth a brief stop. Volunteer was very nice. Able to get stamps for our park passports. Good stop.

It's a great park. People in the visitor-center are very kind and the park is big enough to spent some hours. We have seen a lot of different animals during our stop.

Good place to stretch your legs, view wildlife, and relax during a long trip or to get out of the city when visiting Savannah.

Visited when I had a few hours to kill and am really glad that I did. Lots of wildlife and a very pretty drive. Not a place to spend more than an hour or so, but if you are in the area, check it out!

There are a lot of different animals. It's sometimes difficult to spot them, but it's nature, you will find many different birds, spiders, snakes, gators and many more.

I don't know too much about golf carts but the road through the refuge is long and rough. I only saw cars and trucks on the road. However, I think a golf cart could get through.
