Listen for beavers slapping the lake's glassy surface with their tails in the early evening -- and you might even spot one swimming close to camp. It's not unusual to see deer peering from the woods or nibbling the grass around the edges of the camp. In early spring, the campground is a prime spot to watch for nesting bald eagles and wild turkeys. Songbirds include bluebirds that nest in one of the 200 bluebird boxes around the refuge during the summer. Deer proliferate during autumn months when they head to the cropland areas of the refuge to feast on soybeans.
