This is a great marsh and bird sanctuary. The boardwalk is well built and maintained. The walk out to the water is an easy one. If there is a downside, it’s that there is not a trail around the lake. It would have been nice...More

This was our first visit to the lake and it was nice to see a few of the local birds in the water. The viewing platform is a great place to spend some time and wait for birds to show up!

We visited in July and although it was busy really enjoyed it. Easy to find and right off the highway. The trail isn't too long if you have kids, bring binoculars if you want to see the wildlife up close.

This is a lovely lake, and its even more interesting because it is also an excellent place to go bird-watching. We took the boardwalk to the lookout where we spent a considerable time just watching all the birds around us.

Right off of the highway, you can't miss the park but beware that there is always a lot of traffic, so it may not be the most peaceful getaway during summer.
