Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge offers easy access by vehicle.  The best way to view wildlife is by driving our more than 20 miles of public gravel roads, and the 3-mile paved Wildlife Drive.  From these roads you may view wildlife in forests, fields, wetlands and open water habitats.

The best times to see that elusive Kentucky Warbler, White-tailed Deer, Wild Turkey or Eastern Fox Squirrel are early in the morning or later in the evening before sunset.  Many wildlife watchers like to get out on foot by hiking one of the trails, or finding their own way through forested landscapes.
