So there aren't many loon centers, visit this one to learn all about this very interesting bird. I did the nature walk, although you won't be able to actually see the loon nesting sites. I did enjoy the nature center as I learned a few more things I didn't know about loons. I think kids will love this as the... More

Wow, what an experience learning about the magnificent, protected bird and its habitat. Very, very interesting and a must see for the family. Also has a hiking trail to their nesting grounds. Fantastic gift shop with everything from books to trinkets with loons on them. The attraction is free with donations accepted.

Very enjoyable movie about loons, even for those of us that already know much about them. Also good displays and gift shop. Came to explore the trails and do some Fall bird watching, but rain came down just as we started. (Reserved the highest rating until we can return and check out the trails.)

This is a great stop! We had no children with us on this trip, wished we had. I learned more about this protected bird than I ever realized. The different sounds they make to communicate, their size, and how they carry their young on there back. Very well presented, a real treat!

They show a very informative video about the local loons. Unfortunately we were there on a very rainy day so could not hike to the lake to see the nesting loons.

Follow the lond road there. It's great if you are a bird watcher or a nature buff. A fair size place with many exhibits.

This was a bit of a disappointment, perhaps because the weather was nasty and we didn't read the brochures carefully. But there are no loons at the Loon Center, other than loons in films, on posters, and in the gift shop. All of those things are great, but we would have liked to see the actual birds. And then we...

a couple short hikes out to see a float with loons. It was too buggy when we were there to hike more than 10 minutes, but it was pretty.

If you want to know about loons, here's the place to go. There are good self-guided tours of information and the staff is always willing to answer questions. There are many talks on many topics. Plenty of loony gifts in the gift shop.
