One of the most notable animals is the loon. The common loon makes an eerie call, which can often be heard at night, and a loud yodel, which may be heard at about any time of day. You will always be reminded of your stay here whenever you hear a loon. Click here to be treated to a loon song (264 KB).
Fox Lake Resort is found in George Washington State Forest, and just outside of Chippewa National Forest. Our woods are therefore highly protected and contain countless other types of wildlife. A lucky visitor will be thrilled to view a bald eagle sitting high atop a tall pine tree or patiently gliding and fishing over Fox Lake. Or a moose may wade out and feed on the water plants along the shoreline. Otters, wolves, foxes, ospreys and many other critters can also be seen by wildlife watchers.
At least four varieties of wild orchid appear in the area surrounding Fox Lake. One of the prettiest and most delicate is the Grass Pink species, pictured above. Others include three Lady's Slipper varieties the Small Round-Leaved Orchid, the Fairy Slipper, and the Small Purple Fringed-Orchid.
For the adventurous plant
observer, two species of carnivorous plants can be found in a bog near our
resort. Pictured here is the carnivorous pitcher plant. That
grasshopper might be lunch soon!
