Great place to hunt and get away. I have hunted there several times over the years and have always had good luck. In fact Georgia offers many locations across the state that are equal or better. Gates don't always stay open so be carefull

This is a great place to bring people to give them a taste of Georgia. The fishing and hunting ain't bad and there are some great photo opportunities as well. This is a user fee area so make sure you have a Georgia outdoor pass or equivalent. If you have the sportsman or wma on your license you are good... More

Nice and slow. No hurry here. The sensation of this visit is to be quiet and listen to the quiet voice of creation. The longer you listen the louder it becomes to where your voice cannot be heard; so, don't try to talk. Take it in and record what you see and hear your way - sketch pad, canvas, still... More

Wonderful back to nature experience not far from town. There is a boardwalk that goes out to a tower. You may see alligators, birds, bugs, flowers, etc. Just a nice way to reconnect with nature.

Went to Grand Bay on a VSU field trip with a Biology class. Nice place. Definitely climb the tower and take a look around from up there. The alligators were croaking the day we went. I'd never heard them make noises like that before. Very cool place and worth a visit!

I have to say my opinion is a bit biased since I work on this area. As the person who gets a lot of phone calls about Grand Bay, I thought I would provide some updated information on the area. Our main attractions on the area are the boardwalk and tower, a 3 mile hiking/biking trail, yr-round fishing, and hunting... More

Ok, let me start this off by saying that my son (he attends VSU) completely loves this place. He couldn't wait to "surprise" me and my husband on our last trip to Valdosta. Maybe if it hadn't been raining or if he had warned me ahead of time so I wasn't wearing high heels, maybe I would have enjoyed it... More

While it can be pretty, and you can see alligators, lizards, bugs and water birds as well as lovely plants and trees, it's a long meandering walk on a boardwalk to a fire tower. The potentially interesting center and animal info is closed to the public so unless you are a school kid... one brief visit and you've done all... More

But it may take more than one attempt to see if there are school children on a field trip: you are not allowed on site. It's a fairly long boardwalk offering views of a swamp and marsh. Wonderful place to see wetland birds, reptiles, and amphibians.
