“Great for kids.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I've been visiting the Reservoir for the last 12 yers with my kids and they never get tired of it. Watching the Bald Eagles fish and raise thier young is very cool.

Very informative about local fauna. Great exhibits. Excellent location. View the exhibits then walk the trails to look for the animals you learned about.

“Very nice display of local wildlife.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

The visitor center is a nice place to visit if you haven't been to it before. They have lots of displays of live local wildlife plus there's scopes you can use to view birds. They also show live images of the bald eagle nest when the eagle's are nesting and raising chicks. The rangers and staff are very welcoming. Also best place to use the bathroom before you hiking around the reservoir.

“Great place to take girl scouts!”

I have a girl scout troop and I speak with the representative at the reservoir ahead of time with badge requirements. They set up an entire program for my troop. It's wonderful!

“Wonderful Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is a smaller visitor center but offers many different rooms of activities and information. It's a great place to spend some time learning about the wildlife in the area. Kids and adults alike can find things to do and learn about.
