  • Came here on a Sunday and pre-registered for the 10:30 am to 1:00 pm trail access. Getting in was smooth as they just ask for your name and then you go on in. We first visited the welcome center...

  • Absolutely amazing park. It's a beautiful walk along easy trails through a variety of habitats. The outlook tower is very tall and gives you a breathtaking view of the lake and the forest. The nature center had educators with different raptors on hand! They were very knowledgeable and super friendly. There is a nice little gift shop as well. The trails will take you through a marsh, along the lake, across a few ponds and through the deep forest and meadows. We saw deer, rabbits and a huge variety of birds including warblers, wrens, hawks and ducks. We were there a few hours but walked every trail and spent a long time birding and sitting enjoying the silence. I also love the fact that they have a preschool! All of the play areas were natural and themed towards teaching kids about how to live alongside wild places! I highly recommend a visit!!!
  • Despite it being winter time, it was beautiful out! They had plowed the paths making it easy to walk through. The lady at the counter at the visitors center was very nice and informative. The visitor center itself has a nice gift shop and plenty of educational materials. Very kid friendly. This is just a really beautiful place to be and get a way for the day. My fiance and I went together and we even came across a few owls hooting to each other in the area that we were at. There are so many different areas and trails to walk it almost seems endless.
  • We had a GREAT day of hiking here. Right by the beautiful Lake Michigan, the observation deck is an awesome way to view the lake if you’re not afraid of heights. We spotted 3 deer and a bunch of little turtles!
  • We couldn't have asked to have our wedding at a more beautiful venue. All of our guests were raving about how gorgeous the outdoor setting and the event space was. Jessica and Bridget were wonderful to work with and made the whole process seamless. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing! We had our wedding in October, so the changing leaves and gorgeous outdoor photo spots made for beautiful wedding photos that I will cherish forever.
  • I took my gradeschool grandkids to Schlitz today for another an enjoyable afternoon. Beautiful spring flowers. Great rock skipping Great Lake. High tower to overlook the park. Turkeys, ducks, turtles, and tadpoles. Trees, ponds, meadows, and meanderings.
