Looking for something to do we saw the ad for The Loon Center in a tourist booklet. A little out of the way, but worth the ride to find it. A very unassuming log cabin on a dirt road with walking trails, gift shop, educational room, videos about a year in the life of a loon, and much more. Learned... More

We were driving by and stopped on a whim. Glad we did!! The information center and gift shop was worth the stop. The exhibits were very well done. There is a guided walk but we didn't do that part--we weren't that whimsy. Besides it was a very hot day. I would recommend an early morning visit if it's going to... More

The Loon Center of New Hampshire is a true gem of an "attraction." Admission is free. The exhibits about loons are very informative and they are designed with kids in mind. There are also videos about loons that run upon request, nature trails, and a gift shop. Our kids enjoyed building the mock loon's nest. The gift shop is my... More

We have always been fascinated with Loons and wanted to learn more about them. The Loon Center provided a wealth information on the topic. We didn't realize that an adult male Loon weighs in at 16 lbs. and is as large as a Canada Goose. The live up to 30 years as well.

We are wild about loons and found this place to be a wonderful resource for both information and all loon-related products.

Visited by chance. What an amazing place. We knew not a lot about Loons before our visit. But learnt so much from the video, static displays and information boards. We did the loon walk. But sadly no loons to be seen. Bit late in the season for them. But the walk is nice. We'll sign posted and lots of flora... More

Stopped off here between hotels, expecting just a quick visit but ended up being here for half a day. Very good video (especially for those of us who don't know anything about loons before arriving), static displays and a fair-sized trail through woodland to the lakeside - best to wear stout shoes for this. Didn't see any real loons during... More
