Noxubee Nat'l Wildlife Refuge

Established in 1940, the Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge is a recreational playground set in northern Mississippi.

Approximately 35 miles southwest of Columbus, and less than 20 miles south of Mississippi State University, Noxubee sits on 48,000 acres and consists of lakes, reservoirs, and nature trails.

Nature lovers, keep your eyes peeled for incredible bird watching and wildlife viewing – Noxubee is home to 254 different bird species, and almost as many animals.

Fishing is a popular activity within the refuge, as Noxubee is home to two major lakes: the 800-acre Bluff Lake, and the 400-acre Loakfoma Lake. Hunting is also permitted, as many sportsmen frequent the refuge for deer, waterfowl, turkey, and small game hunting.

For those looking to get a little exercise, the refuge provides many foot trails for outdoor adventurers. Choose from Woodpecker Trail, Morgan Hill Overlook Trail, Scattertown Trail, and several more. Noxubee also provides incredible views of this 48,000-acre refuge, just head to Goose Overlook – the 30-foot-high observation deck granting views of wildlife and Bluff Lake.
