A smartphone snapping a photo of a bright yellow flower in a grassy field

Wildlife photography is an increasingly popular activity at Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Search for grassland dwelling songbirds along our hiking trails in the spring and summer, or walk Deephole point road to catch a glimpse of waterfowl floating in rafts along the Potomac River. Visit the refuge’s photo blind situated on Marumsco Creek, or the observation platform at the intersection of Fox and Deephole Point Roads. Photography opportunities are boundless along all refuge roads and trails open to the public.
