Rifle River Recreation Area
Rifle River Recreation Area provides year-round recreation opportunities, including fishing, paddling, camping, swimming, hiking, mountain biking and more. The park is home to 10 no-wake lakes and ponds, including Grousehaven and Devoe, the Rifle River and several scenic streams. There is an observation tower located along Ridge Road overlooking many of the parks features and a swinging (suspension) bridge across the Rifle River.
The park is also home to a 3-D archery range, including 10 different targets, that is open April through October. There is a $2 fee. The park is open to hunting, and there is an accessible hunting blind available by reservation.
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.
