Dunbar Cave State Park

Outdoor Experiences

Dunbar Cave State Park and Natural Area offers a diverse and beautiful natural side.

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 of waterfowl and songbirds. 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.
