We went there on December 29, 2018. The temp was in the 20's but the wind was calm and it was a sunny day. The park is sort of nestled down at the bottom of a hill so it felt much warmer. Being off season,...More
My first trip to visit Fayette was amazing. The fall colors were gorgeous. The park sits on the shores of Lake Michigan. The buildings were closed for the season but we didn’t care. There as still so much to see and gave us an excuse...More
My husband and I camped for two nights in the very quiet clean camp grounds here. We also took a walking tour of the historic town of Fayette, which is a must see whether you camp or just drive through the park. We would definitely...More
It is neat seeing the work that has been done on this sight between visits. The last time we went the hotel hadn’t wasn’t open, and now they have restored the office to it’s appearance. Don’t miss the music hall! It is kind of on...More

The park is open year round, but the museum might not be open until a week later than May 11. There is no elevator; just a paved and then gravel path that is navigatable by wheelchair (I’ve done it), but is steep enough to be a challenge and I wouldn’t recommend it unless one is confident of being able to handle the physical strain. Someone to push (or hold back) would be good. Moving around town is similar - some are accessible, others are not. It is a 100+ yr old ghost town, that is very real as it appeared back then, which is good historically, but presents certain challenges.
