Stay on U.S. 17 up over the overpass like you're going to Savannah, and the Savannah NWR Visitor Center entrance is approximately 1/2 mile beyond the overpass on your right. There is a sign at the interchange with SC 170 West indicating to exit right for the Savannah NWR, however, this will take you to another part of the refuge; not the visitor center. We recommend stopping at the visitor center first for information on accessing other parts of the refuge.
