- The refuge provides habitat for migrating waterfowl and nesting habitat for a variety of birds
including the bald eagle. Herons and egrets use the area for feeding. A 15-acre pond near Yondota Road gate is open for fishing from dawn to dusk during the summer months.
This area was formerly a large waterfowl hunting club and the refuge was established in the mid 1960s when the hunting club donated the land to the Fish and Wildlife Service to form the refuge.
Fishing is permitted each year from June to August.
Cedar Point NWR is located on the Lake Erie shoreline northeast of Oregon, Ohio, (near Toledo, Ohio).
