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!

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.

this is the place to go if you love or are fascinated by the behaviour of loons. Everything you ever wanted to know about these wonderful birds is here. When you see them out on the lake, "dancing" and calling to their potential mates it is a thrilling experience. For some reason, during the last few years loons have not... More

I bring my girls every summer to the loon festival that the loon center hosts. They have food, face painting, crafts, music and learning exhibits for the kids
