Baseline Reservoir

This private lake is a good place to look for migrating loons and diving ducks, including scoters, in late fall. Sometimes gulls roost on the southwest shore, near the road, where they are easily viewed. In winter, if the water is open, you may see some rare birds on the lake. The easiest viewing of the reservoir is on the southwest side, off Cherryvale’s wide shoulder. Please watch for traffic.
