  • Great place to visit with the family. Its a small loop through the wetlands with plenty to see. We saw lots of turtles on the day we drove through. Also lots of different birds.  more »

  • Wonderful mini get away. Great marked trails. And you can even drive on an 8 mile road through the marshes. I saw birds I have never seen before. And an Eagle's nest. Just beautiful.
  • 8 mile Drive through salt marsh refuge great for bird watching. Atlantic city skyline visible to the south east. Large numbers of migratory birds stop here on their ways north or south. Foot trails exist for those who wish to walk through different areas and see a broader range of wildlife. Some trails and boardwalks must be driven to for access. New building is being finished (spring 2017).
  • Love this place. Staff in the center are always friendly and helpful. They have binoculars and giude books you can borrow.
  • Loved the drive through a dirt road with beautiful swamp land on both sides, great place to go bird watching, very relaxing it's like a free zoo without screaming kids
  • Amazing running outside of summer. Besides the 8 mile dirt road, they have 4 miles of trails. One of my favorite places to run when I'm home.
