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.

We wanted to kill like an hour so we drive through this 4 mile loop and really enjoyed it! Saw a couple alligators on the drive, but it also offers some really beautiful sights.

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!

Unlike so many attractions, this is free of charge. The whole thing takes around half an hour and comprises a self drive through some lowland areas. There are stopping points where you can tune your radio in to listen to a commentary about a particular...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.
