The garden is a property of Michigan State University. First the ranger by the front gate is so friendly and very detailed to let you know what you will be encountered. They offer you a driving and hiking map for your reference. The view is excellent in autumn, great color and atmosphere. We were told that it is very popular... More

It had been a few years since we have been to Hidden Lake Gardens and I must say the site has been updated and improved. The hiking trails have been updated and widened (but not the entire distance on the longer trails, just the beginning). To us, the hosta area next to the lake was new. The bonsai plants are... More

Beautiful gardens to enjoy either by driving or walking and worth every cent of the small admission fee!

Hidden Lake Gardens is a beautiful area that includes gardens, climate-specific greenhouses, wide open spaces, a lake to view, trails through the woods, restrooms, and a gift shop. It looks like a decent place for an event as well. There are a few snacky items, like candy and bags of chips and chex mix along with soda and water available... More

My family very much enjoyed the drive through the gardens and the walk around the conservatory. Small admission fee covers hours of driving, hiking, or simply strolling through the hundreds of acres of beautiful flowers, shrubs, and trees. The hosta garden was particularly enjoyable as was the bonsai display. Staff was friendly, helpful and more than willing to answer any... More

Not too much to say that has not been said better already. Very nice, mid-sized park owned & operated by MSU. I found Hidden Lake Garden to be remarkably well maintained with excellent signage and just about everything you could really hope for in terms of exhibiting plants, trees and flowers. Real standouts were the hiiking trails and the conservatory... More

This place is pretty and nicely landscaped but I'm not a fan. Paying to get in and look at the landscaping is boring and there are better state parks in the area.

If you don't want to get out of the car there are a few miles of paved lanes looping through mature hardwoods, sparse remnants of prairie, and manicured plantings. If you want to stretch your legs there are a few miles of hiking trails through steep and hilly hardwood forests.

Hostas Hostas Hostas. They are my favorite and there are SOOO many different kinds here. I love that we can just drive thru if we want, or park and walk around. It's a beautiful, well taken care of property.
