Here are a few ideas to make your park visit even better.
Other Fun Activities - MIBackpack along the Waterloo/Pinckney Hiking Trail. More than 40 miles long, it is a great trail to check out in the spring and fall for the vistas and variety of terrain. There are several camping areas along the way. Brimley State Park is a great place to watch the ships head to and from the Soo Locks. Another great location to view Great Lakes ships is Algonac State Park. There are more moose sightings in Tahquamenon Falls than anywhere else in the eastern Upper Peninsula. Clear Lake State Park has a lake that is 100 feet deep and is spring fed. This park and surrounding area are great places to look for wildlife, including elk. Yankee Springs Recreation Area has a barrier- free trail. It's one-half mile of hard surface and wooden boardwalks that cross wooded, wetland and lakeshore habitats ending at a viewing deck and fishing pier on beautiful Gun Lake. Brighton Recreation Area has also added a one-mile barrier-free trail. William Mitchell State Park is the home of the Carl T. Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center. Archery and shooting programs at the pellet gun range are very popular with children. Sleepy Hollow, Fort Custer, Waterloo, Holly and Newaygo state parks all have Disc Golf courses. There are no green fees to play this fast-growing sport. Muskegon State Park now has an accessible luge run available all year. It's the only one in the country.

Check out the buzz on this park from all over the social media universe.
Sorry my friends are totally loud and love to swear, drink, and stay up late making noise!
Why isn't trapping allowed for rabbits and hares? Also why are they not considered a fur bearing animal? Thanks

(I KNOW HOW THE MICHIGAN DNR CAN RAISE ALOT OF MONEY) My husband just came up with the idea.....LOL Have a idea on how the Michigan DNR can start raising money. It my sound dumb to some but its funny if you think about it. Michigan would be the first state in the U.S. to do it hell we would be the only state in the world to do it. And i think they would make alot of money off of it. We should start for this year having "Sasquatch" hunting licence. It would only cost the DNR the ink to have them printed up in the machine and have some dumb rules on it in the 2012 Michigan Hunting & Trapping Digest Book because i could see someone in the woods in a blind or treestand..lol You could sale them for around $30.00 each. And i even would buy a few to just say i have one.

Got question... is it legal to spear smelt on Higgins lake during the winter spearing season? The digest says yes to non trout lakes on page 12. Higgins is a lake that is stocked with trout and is a type E lake. But on page 22 it says type A, D, and B* lakes marked with an asterisk are designated trout lakes which seems to excludes type E lakes from being a trout lake. I'm being asked this question by several fisherman. Any help would be appreciated.

We just had 6 Bald Eagles, on the ice, in front of our house. I tried to load the entire album to your DNR page, but your security settings are prohibitive. There were 2 adults and 4 juveniles! I've never seen this many, at once, on our lake.

Has anyone fished or heard of any steelhead activity at either Yates park or huroc recently? Want to make one last trip before it is too cold.
