The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge is experiencing low water levels in much of the refuge which is impacting access to several of the overnight shelters in the swamp and closing many trails in the Okefenokee Wilderness Trail System. Beginning on November 14, the refuge will only be accepting reservations for overnight camping trips two weeks in advance, instead of two months. Reservations made prior to November 14 will be honored as scheduled. Booking only two weeks in advance should help the refuge better manage cancellations if the water continues to fall. The Canoe Reservation Line is open Monday – Friday from 7:00 A.M. – 10:00 A.M., excluding federal holidays.
Due to Hurricane Matthew
Temporary Emergency Animal Evacuation Shelter – open to shelters/rescues and personally owned pets.
