Nice place to visit. A drive at dawn or dusk on Wildlife Drive (Visitors Drive) is a good way to view wildlife, but getting out and walking the various trails is a good experience too. Tate's Trail is easy and quite nice. Tripod Trail, to the photography blind at Martins Lake is even easier, and has some nice interpretive signs along the way.
Biking can be enjoyed here. There are about 100 miles of roads and single-tracks where public auto use is not allowed.
Management deer hunts in the fall, and management turkey hunts in the spring occur at the refuge but there are many areas where hunting is not allowed. My last visit was during a deer hunt, yet I had no problem enjoying myself. I spent a great deal of time around Martins Lake, Oxpen Lake, and Honkers lake and never even felt the presence of hunters.
