The park has regular guided tours to view eagles on Lake Erie. Believe it or not, the best days to view the eagles are the coldest days of winter. They are often quite a ways out so bring binoculars a... more »
I can't review because the State of MI chooses to charge admission. Few states I have visited where a fee is charged to have a picnic. more »

Walked the Nature trail twice. Maybe to some trees are nature. I expect to see wildlife. In the visitor's center they have a large Eastern Fox snake that needs to be taken from them It is in a very small enclosure and it's nose is rubbed white, when it's supposed to be a copper color. Obviously this snake has rubbed his own nose off trying to get out. Eventually that will get infected and kill the animal. Also a Bald Eagle in a large enclosure sits in the same spot it was sitting two years ago the last time I was there until last week. The trail that had obviously been sprayed around the edges with round-up or some other poison, and inches beyond that it's too overgrown to do anything but stay on the main trail. And the poison will prevent any wildlife from crossing the trail, which is why you see no animals. I will be contacting the Brownstown Animal Control officer to get the Eastern Fox snake which is protected by law removed from their possession. It needs a much larger enclosure. A hot side and a cool side, a water dish that the entire animal can fit into. And anti-biotics to help heal the worn nose that will eventually kill the reptile. It wasn't worth $10.00 to see no animals. Especially since I have a State park pass every year. The pass should be usable at both State parks and Metro parks. The Metropark annual pass comes out in January and is $30.00 too much knowing that the year includes 3/4 of the year where it's too cold to visit. I feel I wasted $10 I saw no animals even after taking two laps on the "Nature" trail.
I think it could use remodeling, restrooms, and a roof-(you never know when or if someone from the sky is flying by),and it would be of great benefit to be shielded from the sun beating down on us.I strongly advise that the ratio for children to responsible adults be considered when bringing children, waves can be overwelming,and if you want a decent meal after your day at the Wave Pool, don't waste your money-go to A&W instead.It would be appreciated for patrons of the pool to be limited to jewerly that they were-very disturbing to be exposed to men showing off their body piercings in certain parts of their body-FREEDOM IN AMERICA DOES NOT MEAN MAKE OTHERS UNCOMFORTABLE OR DRESS disturbingly out of spite-they are influencing others.I can still smell cigarette smoke when I am on the pool deck.Eating concession building definitely needs remodeling,I don't recall air conditioning-and we shouldn't be seeing flies inside.There should be shelter for those whom want to wait for the storms to calm down, wasted money,had to leave of only having spent 3 hours.VERY NICE STAFF, AND APPRECIATED quick response when I felt the need to be helped, overwelmed in the waves.Don't hesitate for help from a lifeguard.
SIMPLY TAKNG NATURE IN, AT HER BEST....COLORFUL
Visited their wave pool and let our 18 month old play on their playground. Overall was a lot of fun, although I was disappointed with the h the june bugs everywhere, but what can you do. Also was shocked our 18 month old was charged to enter because he was taller than their height board for kids under that height. Which was extremely low, basically only infants who can't wall are free....
A great place to have a BBQ and spend the day with friends and family and to celebrate the 4th of July and celebrate the independence of the USA from Great Britain
