Visit Us

If you enjoy getting outdoors and looking for wildlife, consider a visit to Cross Creeks National Wildlife Refuge!  Hunting, fishing, birding, photography, boating, biking, hiking, kayaking and simply taking a peaceful drive to see the wildlife are all popular activities on the refuge.  

Our visitor center entry is free and it is open Monday – Friday from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm (except for Federal holidays).  The refuge hosts Earth Camp each year for 4th and 5th graders from Stewart county.  There is also a free family fishing derby each spring as well as a canoe/kayaking event in summer and a hummingbird banding event in August. 

All the refuge roads and areas are closed seasonally from Nov. 15 – Mar. 15 to provide sanctuary for waterfowl and other migratory birds.
