  • I was born and lived in Michigan for 36 years, before moving out of state. We lived in Sterling Heights for 10 years. We often drove to Stony Creek from Sterling Heights on summer evenings after work to spend some time relaxing by the lake. Our two young children enjoyed playing in the sand on the beach and wading in the shallow water. My wife just enjoyed getting out of the house after spending most of the day inside. We had a season parking pass to enter the park, since we drove here quite often, a short distance from our home.
  • Beautiful place to visit. Beaches are clean and comforting. Love the nature center and the friendly people who work there. The bike paths are well taken care of. Lots of water things to do like kayaking, fishing, swimming, more. Pavilions available to use for get togethers. Great place to spend a day😄
  • The clearest, warmest water in Michigan I believe. Great fishing and swimming. I wish there was an actual launch spot for kayaking but we just found any ace that was suitable. Overall, good place for summer! $10 cash for entry. $35 for a season pass.
  • Have been going to this place since I can remember it was my backyard growing up it's a beautiful park there are many things to do hiking, mountain biking, golfing, kayaking, swimming, beaches ,volleyball you name it you can do it. pet friendly environment most of the areas except for the main beaches. lots of relaxed (low traffic/secluded) areas and places for parties and recreational fund. Very safe park constantly see patrol
  • Always our favorite park to swim at and play on the play structure... The inflatable slide is fun too all at Eastwood beach. And the trails behind the nature center, and the nature center are Amazing.. And of course the creek itself. Go check it all out... You won't be disappointed. We never are
