The Choctaw National Wildlife Refuge is located about 20 miles northwest of Coffeeville, Alabama. From Coffeeville, Alabama take Highway 84 across Tombigbee River going West. Turn north off U.S. Highway 84 at County Road # 21, which is about 8 miles west of Coffeeville and 4 miles east of Silas; then go north 4 miles to Barrytown and turn east; follow County Road #14 to Womack Hill; turn right at Womack Hill. Watch for refuge directional signs from Highway 84 to the refuge entrance.
An information kiosk is located at the North end of the refuge.
Due to the fact that the refuge abuts the Tombigbee River there are multiple opportunities to view wildlife. Hunting, fishing as well as photography and bird watching, are all enjoyed activities on the refuge. A large portion of the refuge is accessible only by boat. The refuge does flood seasonally and becomes inaccessible by road for up to weeks at a time.
