I live close by and frequent Middle Creek often. Last time there, saw an Eagle sitting on branch of dead tree. Saw 8 deer, 2 of which were babies , still had there spots. There were 2 pheasants with 6 babies along side of tour road. A nice pleasant way to spend the day if your a nature lover. There are walking trails, an observatory with lots of info, videos, a lg. room to observe the lake with all the birds, bird feeders with humming birds. There are picnic tables and restrooms inside of building. Depends what time of year you visit, from Tundra geese to Eagles with their babies. You can fish in the lake and it is open to canoes and kayaks certain time of the year. Best time to visit is during the week, week-ends can be crowded but never seen it overly crowded. No need to travel great distances, this is in your back yard .

Nice hiking trails and incredible views when the snow geese are in town. Also the visitors center is convenient with educational material and clean restrooms.

The swans and snow geese are awesome in the winter. The warbler migration is pretty good as well. Pack a lunch and enjoy the day hikes.

We visited Middle Creek over Memorial Day weekend and had a great experience. There is a small visitors center that houses a lot of taxidermy as well as animal hides and pelts for the kids to experience. There is also a great room with interactive learning activities/ifnromation.

We chose to hike a short trail due to a member of our party recently having foot surgery. The trail was paved and ended with a pavilion that had several picnic tables as well as the pay as you go binoculars so that you could look for wildlife on the small island in the middle of the lake. The views were amazing and we really enjoyed our hike.

We then moved over to a location on the other side of the lake and enjoyed our lunch. Afterwards, the kids went down to skip rocks on the lake. Overall, it was a great experience and we will definitely be returning in the near future.

A favorite of my husband since childhood, Middle Creek is quickly becoming a favorite place of our entire family. We like to hike the trails behind the visitor's center, which gives a much different feel than near the water. Nice place to bring a picnic lunch, and never seems very crowded.
