Nestled in the woods between Honker and Hematite Lakes, the Nature Station serves as a gateway to the 8,500-acre Nature Watch Area. It is staffed with "go to" specialists for wildlife viewing throughout Land Between the Lakes. 

Events are rain or shine with adjustments to schedules as needed. The Nature Station turn-off to the east of the Trace is about halfway between the North Welcome Station and the Golden Pond Visitors Center.
