  • Fantastic park on grounds of old decommissioned army fort, big parking lot and pretty short walk to overlook of Lake Michigan. Several adjoining long trails also. Great for bicycling and walking.
  • Great trails & Great shoreline, not much beach with high Lake Michigan waters but still great. Nice that well mannered leased dawgs are welcome. Please open and ready the newly improved trails soon!
