We're visiting the Looney Bin!

Interesting place to visit if you have any interest in the fabulous loons that are so characteristic of northern freshwater lakes. (And you should be interested!!!). Not a big... read more

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

This is a must stop for those of you who love all things loons. Make sure you take the time to watch the video too. Great information. Kids will love it too.

If you ever wanted to know all you could grasp about loons in one day or less, this is the place to be. They offer mini seminars describing the loon's habitat, how long it takes to raise a chick, and other fascinating facts about loons - all along while hearing their distinct "wail'. A great part about the center is... More

We loved this place as we didn't know anything about Loons apart from seeing and hearing them on the lakes. The staff were very helpful and dedicated to informing people about these endangered birds.

We just happened to visit during the Loon Festival. Parking was crazy, you had to park on the dirt road and walk awhile. I do not think that parking is an issue during other times of the year. They had free activities for kids such as a dunk tank, face painting, crafts and a clown making balloon animals. They also... More

Interesting place to visit if you have any interest in the fabulous loons that are so characteristic of northern freshwater lakes. (And you should be interested!!!). Not a big place but there is a DVD playing and you will learn quite a bit about these fascinating birds. There are outside trails so good place to go if it is a... More
