We stayed at the group campsite for two nights through some pretty exciting rain storms. Ranger staff was great, and our group really enjoyed the convenient boat rentals, observation tower, and scenic hikes.

If you're looking for more of a beach experience, check out Whitefish Dunes. However, if you love the woods, this park is for you. There are hiking/biking trails through the wood that are beautiful. You'll see tons of wildlife. The tower at the north end...More

We rode our bikes from our campground which was right next to the park. I'm not fond of riding on roads I prefer bike trails, but this park was so quiet, seems to be a hidden gem, there was very little traffic on the road....More

What are some of the highlights to this park? There's an Observation Tower and Old Ski Hill Overlook? Can we park by the Tower without hiking a few miles?

Yes you can park right by the tower and then climb up it for great views. Beautiful shelter areas for picnics that overlook the lake (kids loved "skipping rocks" there, if you know what that means😀). Great biking park with... More
