A partnership agreement between the Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuge and the Johnston County Commissioner's was established and recently completed this fall to improve access to the recreation areas: Murray 23 Boat Ramp, the Headquarters Camping Area and Jemison Lookout.  Access was improved by overlaying the gravel roadways and parking areas with asphalt.  This project saved the refuge an estimated $125,000, which allowed the improvements to become a reality. Paving the access roads not only provides the general public with a better opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors; but it also allows visitors who are disabled additional recreation accessibility for camping, fishing, wildlife viewing and the chance to get up close when utilizing the newly completed floating boat dock at Murray 23.
