Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge
Canoe or Kayak the Waters at Okefenokee
In an effort to protect a large portion of the Okefenokee Swamp, local governments established the Okenfenokee National Wildlife Refuge in 1937 in southern Georgia, near the coast.
At 402,000 acres the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge spans across Clinch, Charlton, and Ware counties. Join the nearly 400,000 annual visitors and explore the refuge on your next trip to the area – drive in from Kingsland or Waycross.
Enjoy a tour of the Richard S. Bolt Visitor Center – take a peek at some of the historical exhibits and be sure to visit the Okefenokee Wildlife League bookstore.
Take full advantage of the outdoor recreation opportunities at Okefenokee. Head for Billy's Lake, the largest at the refuge, and try to land a keep or two. There are nearly 121 miles of swamp trails, perfect for day filled with canoeing adventures. And be sure to hike or bike the nine-mile Swamp Island Drive.
