Stutsmanville Bog Nature Preserve

S. State Road,
Harbor Springs, MI 49740
Description
65 acres. One of the best examples of fen or peatland in northern Michigan. A bog is a unique type of wetland dominated by organic soil known as peat; bogs are known for unusual plants such as the carnivorous pitcher plant and sundew. This area has been the subject of many ecological studies. A 1/4-mile trail leads from the parking lot to the bog overlook and interpretive signs. Please be sensitive to the fragile nature of this ecosystem when visiting; even sporadic foot traffic off the trails can permanently damage the vegetation. The parking lot is on State Road (S. State St.) about five miles north of Harbor Springs.
