Favorite place in Southeastern Michigan to run. The 6 mile paved walk/bike loop is maintained all year even in the winter months. The Mountain bike trails offer serious terrain for bikers/hikers or runners looking to switch things up. The park has many picnic areas and is unbelievably scenic. Despite being part of a populated suburb, you are submerged in nature... More

This is a true gem for anyone who lives/visits the metro Detrtoit area, and who loves the outdoors. There is an inland lake, a paved walking/biking/blading, etc path around the lake, a trolley trail through the woods, a very nice golf course, beautiful mountain bike/x-country skiing trails, and much more! This is a nice place to escape the hustle &... More

I live close enough that the family and I bike in much of the summer so the kids can play on the great new playground and just do loops when we want. I also bike around the loop with friends in the early morning or after work for a workout. We do visit this location for different scouting events and... More

We loved the all sports atmosphere of Stony Creek Metropark. We brought our bikes and enjoyed riding the well maintained 6 mile trail around the park. It was refreshing not to have to meet up with cars. There are plenty of people walking, running and cycling along the paths so you do not feel funny being outside. We went to... More

Stoney Creek Metro Park is a fabulous place to go and have fun. There is so much to do. Make sure you are going to make a day of it. More than likely, you will want to go back several times. Great play area for the kids and the beach is wonderful. Nice and sandy. Take the time to drive... More

I had not been to Stoney Creek since I left Michigan in 1969. How beautiful and well kept. We were fortunate to hold our 44th class reunion picnic here at a lakeside pavilion, what a great place. The only downfall and I consider it a big one was that there were no handicapped accessible bathrooms and the pavilion access was... More

We've visited this metro park a few times now. The playground at the beach is awesome. We also really enjoyed the visitor center and hiking trails there. But, for us, this park can be a bit overcrowded. Try going on a week day vs. a weekend if you want to avoid crowds.

Stonycreek is one of the Detroit Metro Parks. You can buy a season pass for $25 that is good for all of the Detroit area Metroparks, or it's five dollars per car load every visit. The nature and wildlife at this park is stunning. When riding bikes or walking the trails you almost always see deer, squirrels chipmunks, raccoons, wild... More
