The portion of NE-25-051-21-W4M lying N of the driveway is also privately owned and not part of the site. Located in the heart of the Cooking Lake Moraine, the site features an impressive 8 km of shoreline and provides an opportunity to view rare avian species, waterfowl and other water birds staging on the lake during migration.
