Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve is preparing for several things including its annual celebration and more attendance, as the reserve grows more popular.
General manager Billy Smith said the park is adding new sites to add more space to the increasing visitation that Magnolia Branch has been receiving this summer.
One reason that the park is adding new sites is because they are booked up for the annual celebration that is held by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.
Smith said the celebration is in honor of being recognized by the federal government as an “Indian Tribe and reservation.”
He added the celebration will be held in August at Magnolia Branch.
More land is being cleared for several more campsites and other sites for parking.
Smith said that sites for tents are being added as well as more parking for vehicles and trailers.
He added that more road is being laid out for visitors to drive and park along.
Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve also has a bathhouse, laundry room, three pavilions, hiking trails, a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, a playground and tubing in the creek.
