The Visitor Center is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, except on federal holidays/ Bond Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is open daily during daylight hours, although some access roads and portions of the refuge may be closed during periods of flooding or deer and feral hog hunts.

Walking Trails

Hiking on the refuge can be enjoyable throughout the year. Approximately four miles of hiking trails are available. The Longleaf Pine trail provides views on an upland pine/hardwood forest, while the Beaver Swamp Loop trail meanders along Stone Creek and through forested wetlands.
