ADA Accessibility Notes

Ages Festival is Appropriate For

5+ for cruises, no age requirements for vans, but car seats must be provided by the parents.

Winter is peak season for bald eagle viewing in Land Between the Lakes! Both our year round resident eagles and visiting winter "snowbirds" are out looking for fish around the lakes. Join the naturalists of the Nature Station on a guided tour over land or water. Both van tours beginning in November and cruises aboard the excursion yacht CQ Princess are available January and February. Yacht tours include a meal served underway in a heated cabin with wraparound windows to ensure good views. Dress for the weather and bring binoculars if you have them. Moderate walking may also be required for the van tours.
