Huntington State Park

The Beach and Boat Dock    by Milt Moody   İMilton G. Moody

Directions: The road past the State Park is paved and off-road parking is available at the shoreline road. Restrooms are available in the park but there is a charge for entry. 

Description: This 240 acre reservoir is a haven for waterfowl since much of this region is quite dry.  The Huntington State Park is situated on the southwest end of the reservoir but better viewing can be had by driving a quarter mile past the park entrance and walking along a shoreline road where access is permitted only on foot. 

Birding: If you don't want to pay the entrance fee you can easily bird from the road and by turning left on the nearby "dead end" road (1500 N.) that goes along a ditch which parallels the shore as it heading to a bunch of trees along the shore.

Sightings: Site visited March 18, 2000 at 10:30 am. We saw Ring-billed Gull, Lesser Scaup, Canada Goose, Common Merganser, Common Goldeneye, American Coot, American Widgeon, Gadwall, Pied-billed Grebe, Black-billed Magpie and a Golden Eagle.    (description by Robin Tuck)
