The North Toledo Bend Entrance Station provides an access point to the eastern shore of one of the country’s largest manmade reservoirs. This reservoir provides visitors to the park with a wide variety of water-related activities and more than 900 acres of pine-filled lands available for camping, picnicking, and hiking.

The building is utilized as an educational center, a Park Rangers office, and a display area of local art and findings from the property. The design takes advantage of the abundance of filtered natural light through incorporating a glass box with deep overhangs as the building’s gallery and gathering space.
