The park is located by the water tower and ferry dock. It's a great place to take your lunch and sit by the water. A welcome break from walking and people. Clean public restrooms too. It was fun to watch the ferries load and unload.

For a peaceful rest during your visit to Mackinaw City, WaWatam Park is the perfect place to relax and catch your breath. You can enjoy the lake scenery, the view of Mackinac Island, and the sea gulls.

This park was located where the ferries come in from Mackinac Island. There is a small lighthouse and marina. Very scenic. Also a splash pad for the kids, although we didn't use it. It was a nice area to walk around and explore.

Walked to this park. This trip there was a cold wind off the lake. On previous years have found it close to town and a good place for a picnic lunch

While travelling we stopped in St Ignace to view the lighthouse. It is located in a very well kept small park. Information is available regarding the rail system and boating of the era. A small water feature is there for the little ones, or big...More

This is a nice, fairly secluded park with a playground, picnic tables, a beach, and an amazing view. We recently had a family reunion at this park. This was the second time we've done so. It's perfect for it! Hardly anyone there, and toilets right...More
