At the time of my visit the Nature Center was being remodeled and was almost completed. It was obvious that the new facilities will be amazing. The entire park is outstanding, ideally located in the Thousand Islands Region and peacefully quiet in November. Wonderful trails...More

accessible after paying to enter the state park, it is well worth your admission to the state park, as well as the time to enjoy this unique setting.

Right now there isn't much to see in the "center" as it is under renovations, but the garage had some activities for children. The trails are still open, and we enjoyed the hike.

It rained mostly the whole time I was in area and since the site itself is undergoing renovation, the garage is being used for the center. Children and adults would find some interesting things here!

I know they are building a new site but really...looks like a garage that they dumped stuff into. The gentlemen in charge though was quite nice and very friendly.

Here they showed us interesting birds (owls, hawks), but you need to make sure you come when the birds are out - check their website for details. Fun for kids but not really for ornithologists.

Nice and clean. Lovely gardens and butterfly centre. In the main building you will find turtles, fish, chipmunks and lots of stuffed animals.

They have over 10 miles of hiking trails and a Butterfly House. These are easy trails for any skill level. Beautiful views along most all of the trails.
