Heavily wooded 300-acre park with a mile of sandy, Lake Huron shoreline.Excellent swimming area and a close view of Great Lakes shipping traffic from beach. A paved non-motorized trail connects the park to Huron Sunrise Trail which stretches to Rogers City riding along the beach next to Lake Huron and ends at the world's largest open-pit limestone mine. The moderating effect of Lake Huron causes temperatures to be less extreme during both summer and winter and also causes up to two weeks delay in season changes compared to a few miles inland. The campground consists of 143 campsites, a mini-cabin, and a Sears Roebuck Lodge.
Spacious, lakefront view picnic shelter with split-stone fireplace available. Metal detecting area. Our 4 1/2 miles of hiking trails are groomed for skiing in the winter.
This was one of the first 14 Michigan State Parks.
