Located in Oakland County the park features a model airplane flying field, an off-leash (fenced) area for dogs, camping, and the longest beach in southeast Michigan at just over a 1/2 mile. The area is a mixture of marshes, ponds, heavy forests, old farm fields, river bottom and lakes that support a variety of animals and excellent hunting. Designated trails throughout the recreation area are available for horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking. The 11-mile mountain bike trail has been ranked as one of the "Top 100 Trails" in the United States and is considered one of the most technical trails in southeast Michigan.
