If you ever wanted to know all you could grasp about loons in one day or less, this is the place to be. They offer mini seminars describing the loon's habitat, how long it takes to raise a chick, and other fascinating facts about loons - all along while hearing their distinct "wail'. A great part about the center is... More

We loved this place as we didn't know anything about Loons apart from seeing and hearing them on the lakes. The staff were very helpful and dedicated to informing people about these endangered birds.

We just happened to visit during the Loon Festival. Parking was crazy, you had to park on the dirt road and walk awhile. I do not think that parking is an issue during other times of the year. They had free activities for kids such as a dunk tank, face painting, crafts and a clown making balloon animals. They also... More

Nothing to dislike here! Great place to bring the kids and it's free! The staff is very helpful in educating people about Loons. The gift shop is full of material and gifts Loon related. I bought a nice book for my grandson to learn more about these birds. The walking trails are fun to do with a family too, Just... More

If you're around and have a nature interest, you will enjoy a quick stop at the Loon Center. In addition to the little museum and shops there are also lots of walking/hiking trails in the vicinity.

My husband and I enjoyed learning about the loon. I've been interested in learning more ever since seeing the movie "On Golden Pond." Great place for all ages!

This organization is helping New Hampshire's loon population in many ways. From building floating loon rafts for nesting to funding research about loon populations on various NH lakes to saving loons in trouble, the Loon Center is there. There is a loon shop and educational displays at The Loon Center. There are also nature trails at the center.

We visited the Loon Center purely to take advantage of the sunny weather and have a nice walk. What we found exceeded our expectations: the video and exhibits about the loons were fascinating, and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The walk down to the lake was first-rate, even though the loons had already left the area. It passes... More
