Birding

Open country birds such as Indigo Buntings, Field Sparrows and Eastern Bluebirds are among the many species seen here. Birding of the deciduous forest canopy during migration is facilitated from some of the Savage and other units spectacular bluff line overlooks.

Fishing

Four small lakes at Grundy Lakes in Tracy City range from one to sixteen acres in size and provide decent bank and wade fishing for trout, bass and bream.
A one acre lake with similar species is located on the Meadow Trail near the visitor center.
Personal boats are not permitted in the lakes.  Boats and fishing are not permitted on the Collins Scenic River section located within the State Natural Area boundary.
