Every vacation to the area always includes at least on cruise on the Grass River.

Wonderful cruise from Bellaire Lake to Clam Lake. Plenty of areas to anchor and swim or just enjoy a Michigan summer day.

The Grass River Natural Area has lovely hiking paths. These paths are appropriate for the novice and for families. One passes by various land forms including river, marsh, and forested areas.
