nice little place, very peaceful, there is a picnic area and lots of room for the kids to run and play
This is a must-see when you're in the area. Hopefully, the trout are in the area because it's awesome to see the huge trout that are usually there.
There is nothing like this place anywhere. They have updated the raft that pulls you across the clear, blue-green water. The size of the trout are unreal. They have a great gift shop that sells some beautifully handmade local quilts and other artifacts. They also sell bug spray and believe me you need it! This is a place you don't... More
This attraction should be listed as kitch-iti-kipi or big springs. Located close to Manistique MI. I used to go there when this was not well known and I would be the only one on the little raft.

Right up the road from Manistique, you will find this amazing little state park at the end of the road. Literally. It is the home of Kitchitipi (sp) Springs.

Peaceful spot. Remakably pure water allows you to see the springs feeding the "Big Spring" forty feet down and watch the huge rainbow trout swim below you. The spring is a couple of hundred feet across and has a viewing raft that takes you across the spring.
This is a definite must if traveling to the UP. Big Spring is a special place. Our early morning visit was very nice, very peaceful and tranquil. We were alone but waited for another couple before our manual cruise across the spring. The spring was literally loaded with trout which were very visible even at a depth of 40 feet.
This is an amazingly different park. It has a wooded picnic area and a nice little gift shop but the star of the park is the Big Spring! After a very short flat walk through a little piece of woods you come across the emerald turquoise blue green big spring. There is a very easy self operating covered raft you... More
This is a must see if you are in the area. The springs, pond, water, fish, etc. are amazing. The self propelled raft is such a unique way to see it. A state park pass is required. If you are from out of state, only buy a day pass, which the ranger was nice enough to recommend.
