Woman and child use binoculars to look at birds.

The best areas to view wildlife, other than from a boat, include Timm’s Point, Bright’s Landing, and Mud Island. Timm’s Point has a nice area that overlooks the lake with a monocular scope to help view wildlife that may be too far to see with the naked eye. Bright’s Landing has an excellent covered fishing pier that provides opportunities to see marsh birds in the summer, and deer and waterfowl in the winter. Mud Island has a viewing platform that is great for observing waterfowl during the winter months, and you might even see a mother wood duck with her brood during the summer here.
