Lake Hudson Recreation Area
Lake Hudson Recreation Area, located near the Ohio border, surrounds the park’s namesake no-wake lake and is home to a designated dark sky preserve, a semimodern campground, a designated swim beach, a boating access site, a 1.5-mile trail and more. The park is also popular for fishing – and known for muskie – paddling, hunting and more. The park encompasses a lake, native grass fields that are part of a pheasant restoration project and forested areas.
The park is home to a dark sky preserve – the first in Michigan’s state park system – offering excellent night-sky viewing. The preserve, located by the park’s picnic shelter, is open 24 hours a day year-round.
Lake Hudson now has an accessible hunting blind available to reserve for free. To reserve this blind 517-445-2265.
Before visiting a state park, boating site or trail, it’s always a good idea to check the latest closures due to weather-related events, planned improvement projects and repairs. Visit Michigan.gov/DNRClosures.
