We love visiting Noxubee! Short hikes are lovely, monthly canoe days are fun! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Little visitor's center is great.

A peaceful and beautiful place to watch herons and other birds. It was lovely to walk on the boardwalks to the cypress swamp, to watch woodpeckers, and look for gators...didn't see any. But did see a little snake off to the side of a boardwalk. Nice visitor center too...friendly, welcoming staff.

Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge encompasses nearly 50,000 acres of wetlands, as well as bottomland and upland forest, and is only about a 20-30 minute drive south of Starkville. The refuge is home alligators, a wide variety of smaller reptiles and amphibians, and numerous resident and migratory birds, including eagles, wood storks, herons, egrets, and brightly colored songbirds, such as the prothonotory warbler. There is a diversity of hunting and fishing options in the refuge during the season. Hiking trails allow access to the wilder areas in the refuge, but be prepared for mud and insects.

The Refuge is a peaceful place to get away from the hustle and bustle. While there, you can often see lots of wildlife such as alligators, egrets, heron, ibis, cormorants, anhingas, bald eagles and their nest, woodpeckers... During the summer, each 3rd Saturday is canoe day sponsored by the Friends of the Refuge and is a chance to get up close to the wildlife.

We have visited the refuge 3 times. This past visit we were delighted to view the nesting bald eagles. We also spotted a fox and 3 alligators. The park staff is so helpful and the trails are lovely. If you are in Starkville, make a point to hike Noxubee.
