Located four miles east of Cheboygan, this woodland park features over three miles of wilderness-quality Lake Huron shoreline and is excellent for spring migration birding. Birds are best viewed from road and forest edges where waves of warblers, thrushes, vireos and flycatchers feast on midges swirling over the cedars. Follow the trails to the North shore where terns, gulls, shorebirds, and Bald Eagles forage. The campground and the road leading there offer easier access to the migrating birds. Keep an eye to the sky as many raptors move north over the park each spring. Over 1,000 owls of six species have been banded here and a sharp eye may spot a roosting owl in the conifer forest. Breeding species include warblers such as Parula, Nashville, and Magnolia. Hermit Thrush, Veery, Winter Wren, and Pileated Woodpeckers add their song to the summer chorus.
