Observe the local wildlife as you take the time to explore the area.

Located on Knotts Island, the Mackay Island Wildlife Refuge is great for photographers, hikers, bikers, and avid bird watchers. You can find Canada geese along with a variety of ducks, warblers, osprey, shorebirds, reptiles, amphibians, and more. This refuge is on the coastal plain between Virginia and North Carolina state border and gives plenty of scenic natural sights along the way. 

It is open annually from March 15 through October 15 from sunrise to sunset. Recreational fishing is allowed for largemouth bass, catfish, bream, and other species in the canals, bays, and ponds. Please wear closed-toed shoes, insect repellant, and sunscreen when you visit here. Keep an eye out for cottonmouth and other snakes that may also be present. You are welcome to hike and observe the wildlife; however, collecting plants and other natural artifacts is not allowed. If you bring pets, they must remain on a leash while you explore the refuge.
