Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge

Nearly 300 species of birds have been recorded at 11,184-acre Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge, shared by Alabama and Georgia. About 40 percent of the refuge is water, and traveling by canoe is an excellent way to see the wading birds and waterbirds. The 7 1/2-mile Wingspread Wildlife Drive, which starts at the refuge entrance, traverses forests and fields and leads to an observation tower with a view of the impoundments; dawn and dusk are the best times to make the drive. The greatest number of bird species occurs at the refuge in spring and fall; late spring and summer are the best times to observe bitterns, herons, egrets, and several species of shorebirds. Vendors rent boats at nearby Lakepoint Resort State Park.
