The geography here funnels thousands of birds to food, shelter, and nesting sites among its wetlands, scrub, and woods. For these reasons, this site has been designated as a Bird Conservation Area. Check out some of the latest bird sightings on eBird.
Braddock Bay has an accessible wildlife observation and fishing platform on Salmon Creek, with accessible parking located off Manitou Beach Road. An accessible parking lot, kayak launch, and fishing platform can be found off East Manitou Road.
