  • What a magical place! Highly recommend taking a sunset walk here and enjoying the natural beauty.
  • Well, it's beautiful and serene, and also a haven for birders with an itch to see waterfowls and marshbirds. The tree-heavy ground that surrounds the wetlands are also rife with birds and their chirps and calls. In sum, it's Lovely!
  • Nice walk; but very muddy with wooden planks only parts of the way and the trails are not clearly marked. Saw/heard common birds: blue jay, crow, redwing blackbird, robin, Canada Goose (with newborns in nest), great blue heron, sparrow, pileated woodpecker, mourning dove and some unknowns. Also saw turtles. No parking lot. Easy to miss the entrance.
  • Great place to enjoy nature. Wear rain boots, even on a nice day there are often big puddles if it rained in the last several days.
  • Nice place. BRING BUG SPRAY!
