Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge offers an eight-mile wildlife drive that meanders through upland and wetland habitats in the Upland and Houston Units of the refuge off of Alabama Hwy. 285. Along the auto route, a wildlife-viewing platform and observation tower allow visitors increased opportunities to view the various habitat types and associated wildlife. Visitors also may hike and bike along the wildlife drive. A one-third mile walking trail near the main entrance winds through the woods, over a creek and along the edge of longleaf pine restoration sites.

Restrooms are available during business days and hours at the refuge headquarters.  Restrooms also are available at adjacent state parks. 


Always observe wildlife from a safe distance and be aware of where you are putting your feet and hands. Venomous snakes and arthropods, as well as poisonous plants, are found on the refuge. To make your trip more enjoyable, you may want to bring:
Bug Spray
Water Bottle
Comfortable shoes for walking/hiking
