COVID-19 UPDATES: Keeping Visitors Healthy

Dunbar Cave State Park

Birding

In the spring and fall, the Lake Trail offers excellent birding. The trail meanders along the edge of Swan Lake and into the hilly mixed deciduous woods, offering a good mix waterfowl and song birds. Swan Lake supports waterfowl visitors during migration and in winter. In the summer, the cave mouth is a great place to experience cool cave air, and see the nesting eastern phoebe. Download a pdf of our bird checklist. For more park and nearby birding locations, view flyer.
