Hartwick Pines State Park preserves the largest stand of old growth white pine (49 acres) in Michigan's Lower Peninsula. With nearly 9,000 acres in which to roam, Hartwick Pines is a great destination for mountain biking, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, camping, hiking, picnicking, birding, hunting, fishing and exploring Michigan's great outdoors. The Michigan Forest Visitor Center is located at the trailhead to the Old Growth Trail and staffed with folks who can provide directions and general information about Hartwick Pines State Park. The center is open all year 'round (9am-4pm during the fall and winter and from 10am-6pm from Memorial Day to Labor Day). Visit during the summer for guided tours of the Old Growth Trail, natural resource-related activities and special guest presentations. Walking along the Old Growth Trail, folks will find the Hartwick Pines Logging Museum. The log cabin buildings tell the story of the White Pine Logging Era in Michigan (1840-1910) and gives the visitors a glimpse of what living in a logging camp was like when White Pine was King. 100 campsites.
