Got to Visitor Center from Tallulah with no problems following online directions. Enjoyed boardwalk from Center, but would have loved to explore more if I had any idea of what dirt roads to take, but alas the visitor center is closed on the weekends.

We love to take our grandchildren to the refuge. ts a great place to get them outside for a while. We try to attend all the events they have. We enjoy the boardwalk and always see something interesting there. My daughter started working there as a student in highschool. She learned many valuable lessons. She went on night trips, watch wildlife. It was a great experience.

The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Headquarters/visitor center well maintained with interesting and informative displays. Many hands on items for kids. Birds present where they suggested and in even greater variety. This was a return trip for me. I had been there in January. The staff was apologetic because all the areas were not open. It was their annual Handicap hunt day. How can you be upset by that. They did this up well also, multiple guides, ATV s to access hard to reach areas, and a light lunch. Great people, well maintained, given the current budget. Will be back.

Spent a chilly, early-spring afternoon here, a short drive west of Tallulah, and an hour east of Monroe, in northeastern Louisiana. Hiking trails throughout the 80,000 acre refuge, are both natural and on boardwalks, are easily navigated and fairly well maintained, and there are a good places to stop, view wildlife (heron, songbirds, ducks, wild turkey, deer, possum, raccoon, black bear), and feel far removed from civilization amongst hardwood trees, ponds, bayous, Spanish moss, saw palmetto, and even errant bamboo. Park Ranger, Jean Mikeal enthusiastically reaches out to local schools to encourage student trips and involvement in on-site programs. Hunting is by permit each winter. There are put-in areas and docks for boaters, as well as a visitor center. Wander by, wander in, and wander through this extensive park and appreciate all that it has to offer for yourself and generations to come.
