Description

Port Crescent State Park is located at the tip of Michigan's "thumb" along three miles of sandy shoreline on Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay near Port Austin. It is home to a dark sky preserve, a modern campground with waterfront views and a camper cabin. It also offers visitors ample opportunities for fishing, canoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, birding and hunting. In addition, a wooden boardwalk parallels the shoreline offering scenic vistas of Saginaw Bay.

When the sun sets and the stars come out, this dark sky preserve – one of only seven in Michigan – has exceptional stargazing. As a dark sky preserve, the park is protected against light pollution. The best location in the park for viewing stars is near the day use parking lot, where a viewing platform is also available
