  • This place has two beaches, many observation docks and different trails all accessible from the main path. The beaches are kept clean and nice. Many wildlife here, the squirrels are tamed so they will come right up to you and look for food. We bring peanuts to feed them.
  • Main trail is 1 mile - paved and easy to walk, with additional trails off the sides that you can take through the woods, fields, marsh, and beach. During our walk, we saw various species of birds, as well as some fish, a snake, 2 deer, squirrels, chipmunks, and a muskrat. The reserve is beautiful. If we are ever in the area again, we will come back.
  • Amazing scenery and great views of the lake !!
  • Great place to go for a run!! Thank you Erie county metro parks!!
  • Well taken care of and lots of feedable wildlife
