Roanoke River NWR is made up of various tracts of land - some of which are accessible only by boat via the Roanoke River (Great & Goodman Islands, Broadneck Swamp, Hampton Swamp, and Company Swamp). Depending on the season, location, and river water levels, the bottomland hardwood forests may be dry or inundated in several feet of water. Visitors can enjoy wildlife viewing and photography, hiking, hunting, fishing, and boating.
