“Over 10,000 acres including 26 miles of beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline”

Wilderness State Park offers visitors a variety of year-round recreational activities within its over 10,000 acres. Wilderness areas and 26 miles of beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline provide great places to observe nature from the nurmerous trails throughout the park. The park's 250 modern campsites are divided into two units, the Lakeshore and the Pines. Six rustic cabins and three rustic bunkhouses are additional options for accommodations withint the park. The terrain is a mixture of dense coniferous forest to mature hardwood forest, with some pockets of open, wet, meadows mixed in. There are an abundance of small ponds mixed in with coniferous wetlands. It is easy to get lost and everyone going into the forest is advised to carry a map and compass.

Wilderness State Park is magical and truly wild, if you stay out of the campground. Rent a cabin instead, either deep in the woods, or on the shore of Lake Michigan. Bunk beds, an outdoor water pump, a port-a-john and a wood stove provide your only modern comforts, leaving you to your own devices to make your own fun. Miles of trails for hiking and biking wind through the woods and out onto a giant spit for incredible views of nature. Get ice, beer and bug spray at the store right before the park entrance, and freshly made doughnuts at the store in the middle of the park. See and hear Great Lakes freighters plying the waters of the Straits, and on a clear day, look for the Mackinac Bridge in the distance.
