A 167-acre property owned by the Town of Freeport, the large, shallow lake, and surrounding wetlands are excellent habitat for waterfowl and a wide variety of birds, as well as beaver, deer, and moose. From the parking area, a flat path provides easy access to the lake. Hiking trails branch off the gravel path and pass through mature forests and by wetlands and streams. The trails can be very wet: boots and a sense of adventure are recommended. Dogs must be on-leash or under voice command at all times and pet waste must be carried out.

The large, shallow lake and surrounding wetlands are excellent habitats for waterfowl and a wide variety of birds. Over 158 species of birds have been identified in this area. Some include Tree Swallows, Canada Warblers, and Scarlett Tanagers as well as waterfowl. There are two loops with the orange loop going around the lake and a blue trail which follows a brook. You can do either loop or both depending on the time you have to spend.
