As a camping enthusiast, this was a neat place to go to. It's not very big, but where else can you see & go in some vintage campers!?! Lots of info upstairs if you are restoring an older camper. Yes, it's a little pricey for the size, but hey they are restoring 'gems'!!

Very neat place to visit or picnic. The grinding is very interesting when it's being done. Also they have a beautiful flower garden of dahlia's!!!!

A humble visit to this place will make you appreciate the sacrifices that these men and women gave to our country. Stop by and offer a prayer of thanks to them.
God Bless America.

Neat to be this close to a former prison. There is a small park next to it where you can read some info on it and the former women's prison across the street. Interesting to know that the rock for it was all quarried nearby and the prisoners built the whole thing!
For more info on it, make a stop at the Joliet Museum just down the road a couple miles, they have a great display on the 3 prison's in the area!!
The only that would make this better, would be having tours of it, as it is now, it's just rotting away!

Beautiful & amazing place. But remember this is a Michigan State Park, so it's not free & you do need a recreation passport or a daily pass to visit if the both is being tended!!! Offseason it's an honor system! So worth it though!!!
Camping nearby at on of the private campgrounds is CHEAP, 2014 rates were $24 for full hook up, cable tv & wifi!!!!

This is an beautiful place!! So quiet and tranquil, the view from the lighthouse is amazing!! Follow the signs on the trees, otherwise you'll end up in no mans land!! Depending on what the weather has been like, you might want a higher clearanced vehicle. When we visited, on our way back out we were lucky enough to see a bear!!!!
