Scenic Walking Area · Hidden Gem · Park
Madeline Bertrand is home to an 18 hole Disc Golf Course that was designed by Steady Ed Headrick, father of disc golf and founder of DGA. The course winds through the woods and was built in 1985. You can play as many rounds as you like for only $4 a day and $3 for kids 15 and under.

There is a daily parking fee of $3 for Berrien County residents and $5 on the weekends for non-residents. Last tee-off for the disc golf course is always one hour before closing.

Madeline Bertrand offers three hiking trails ranging from 1.2 miles to 2.3 miles in length. Bicycling is permitted on specified trail only May-October.

Dogs are allowed in the park, but must be leashed at all times. (Dogs are not permitted on the ski trails.) We ask that you clean up after your pet and properly dispose of any waste.

Join us when snow conditions permit CROSS COUNTRY SKIING. We offer three groomed trails of varying difficulty ranging from 1/2 mile to 2 1/2 miles. Ski rentals and trail passes are available in the Topenebee Shelter.

Ski trails are only open to hiking when there is no snow.

Winter Walking Trail is a combination of disc golf fairways and forest with scenic views along the northern ridge, looking down into the St. Joseph River floodplain. Approximate length is 3/4 mile.

  • This is a great park for relaxing. Right on the river, they have great walking/hiking trails and an 18 hole frisbee golf course. It is setup for pros as most holes turn right and you need to know how to throw to make it go hard right. It is a great wooded course and a lot of fun. Perfect getaway.
  • The park itself is very nice and well kept. The two young boys working at the welcome center this evening were quite rude. Not a single smile from either of them. Once 8:30 hit we knew we would need to be heading back from disc golf at that time and one of the young boys came over and rudely said we need to need to leave immediately. As we walked to simply pick up our frisbees on the ground a few feet away, he repeated himself again aggressively as if we did not hear him the first time even though we acknowledged we would be leaving immediately, since the park was closing.
