Wolf Island National Wildlife Refuge
Accessible by Private Boat Only
Wolf Island National Wildlife Refuge, which includes Egg Island and Little Egg Island, was established on April 3, 1930 as a migratory bird sanctuary. The refuge consists of a long narrow strip of oceanfront beach backed by a broad band of salt marsh. Over 75% of the refuge's 5,126 acres are composed of saltwater marshes. It is located in McIntosh County, Georgia, 12 miles east of Darien (by boat). Though the refuge's saltwaters are open to a variety of recreational activities, all beach, marsh and upland areas are closed to the public.
