From the mouth of the Suwannee River, the refuge fronts 26 miles of the Gulf of Mexico. Protecting 36,000 acres of wetlands and 16,000 acres of uplands, the refuge provides ample opportunities for exploration. Located along the southern edge of the Big Bend Region of Florida’s West coast, Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge is bisected by the Suwannee River, and it offers the visitor year-round wildlife observation, hiking and photography. There are 40 miles of improved roads (primary) scattered through the refuge that are open to motorized vehicles. Bicycling is also allowed on all refuge roads. Be aware that hunting is allowed in the refuge and is intense in October and November. Pets are allowed on a leash and controlled at all times.
