Great natural resource for birding, walking, etc. It does have a shoreline to see shorebirds etc. Trails are paved and stoned.

I always walk here when we stay at Sawmill Creek Resort. Good paved walking path. Unfortunately, people can't seem to read the signs and feed the chipmunks and squirrels, so they are exceptionally friendly. Have seen many deer in the past.

We stopped here on a day trip to Huron, and we had a fantastic time. We saw turtles, snakes, swans and geese. We walked the beach, and found the best stones to skip. The pathway is really nice and it's pretty easy to get around.

I could not believe all of the birds, squirrels, and a variety of things seen here. A must is taking unsalted peanuts to feed to squirrels and the birds. Very wonderful place to spend time
