Hurricane Florence - Refuge Closure and Information

The Refuge Headquarters is now open

Cox Ferry Lake Recreation Area will remain closed to the public at this time. Closure Notices will be placed on public access gates. Once a closure is in effect, it will remain in place until the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service assesses storm damage or the threat of the Hurricane has passed.

A safety assessment will be conducted post-storm.  The refuge will reopen as soon as it is practically possible.  Further announcements will be made at that time.
