Our Services

The Refuge is open to visitors from 4:00 am until 2 hours after legal sunset.  There is a Visitor Center on Quebec Road with exhibits but hours vary with staffing so please call 318-574-2664 before coming.  Even if it is closed, however, there are several activities available for the public within the general vicinity of the Visitor Center.  From the Visitor Center Parking Lot, take a walk on the Hollow Cypress Boardwalk to the Observation Tower.  Also be sure and take a spin around the Wildlife Drive, a 4.5 mile gravel loop that shows some of our cooperative farming units, moist-soil units, and reforested areas. From the Wildlife Drive, visit the Rainey Brake observatory and public use pier via walking trail.
