While Lake View can be filled with beach-goers in summer, it's a good place to picnic and watch for birds in spring and fall. Ducks, loons, grebes, jaegers, and gulls regularly gather along the lakeshore during migratory seasons. The National Audubon Society has designated the area between the national park and Beverly Drive, which parallels Lake Front Drive, as an Important Bird Area. There are no lifeguards at Lake View, but it is the only area in the national park with picnic shelters overlooking the lake.
