Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge

Description:

Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1964, on the Walter F. George Reservoir (Lake Eufaula) in cooperation with the Corps of Engineers (COE). The reservoir resulted from impoundment of the Chattahoochee River between Alabama and Georgia. The Refuge, lying on the upper reaches of the reservoir, consists of 11,184 acres. There are 7,953 acres in Barbour and Russell Counties, Alabama, and 3,231 in Stewart and Quitman Counties, Georgia.

Directions:

The Refuge is located about 40 miles south of Columbus, Georgia and 80 miles east of Montgomery, Alabama. Much of the refuge lies within the city limits of Eufaula, Alabama. The headquarters is seven miles north of Eufaula off U.S. Highway 431 on Alabama Highway 285 (also known as Old Alabama State Route 165).
