Continued . . .

Late fall and winter mark the best time to see wildlife from the observation tower that juts up east of Big Sandy Creek and close to the headquarters office. Here you can look through a mounted spotting scope to watch flocks of waterfowl and deer herds eating grains. Beyond the fields, look for wading birds along the shoreline, and ducks in the lake. Occasionally, you'll see bald eagles perched in dead trees at the field edge. Interpretive signs help identifiy birds. Jemison Lookout, near Nida Point provides a beautiful view of the Cumberland Pool year-round.
