Excellent photographic opportunities

Lots of interesting flora and fauna to photograph while exploring the preserve. Recommend going in the morning if it's summer. due to the heat.

I've been here a few times. There really isn't much to it. It's very overgrow and has been fairly neglected. However, the last time I stopped in, I talked to a DNR officer and they were doing some work to improve the habitat. That should make for a better experience for hunters and hikes in the coming years... if they... More

This is a great place to go walk for a while with your dog or family. You can take great pics out here too. The trash cans need to be obtained because I don't wanna be strolling down the boardwalk and step on a dirty diaper and half eaten chicken. Then I don't like the nasty bathrooms. I would rather...

If you love to look at swamps and other natural things, this is the place for you. Not a long hiking trail and for me not much to see as a local. However if you live somewhere where you don't get to see these kind of places and animals, this may be exciting for younger kids. The stairs have a... More

Grand Bay is a wonderful place to view. I go there often with my children and with large groups of children and teens. It is very educational as far as the natural plant and animal life of this area. The museum there is also educational....just packed with scientific data and hands-on learning experiences.

Want to get away, see some gators, and enjoy an actual swamp by all means of the Word?? Look no further! Beautiful (and safe) boardwalk with a great tower to climb and every once in a while you can get a low flyover from the local Moody Air Force Base!

I love coming here. It's usually pretty quiet and you can get a really good view from the tower. I highly recommend a visit and a stroll down the boardwalk if you are in town.

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
