Hartwick Pines State Park

Reviewed By Karen D - Cheboygan, Michigan

We camped in the campground for three nights. The hosts there were amazing; so attentive and engaging. You could tell they loved being hosts. The campground is very nice. Bathrooms are clean. Sites are large. I would go back. We also visited the logging museum and hiked a couple of the trails. It is an interesting place. Our grandkids loved it!!

Mason Tract Pathway

Reviewed By boothman2016 - Ann Arbor, Michigan

The Mason Tract is a tract of thousands of acres set aside for complete immersion in a stretch of beautiful river country. Aside from some structures at Canoe Harbor and Fisherman's Chapel, built of natural local materials, there are no structures, no cottages, no nothing in this beautiful area. You'd never know that you were in the lower peninsula. The trout fishing is wonderful with most of the South Branch very accessible to waders and floaters alike, but the hiking paths and terrain is changeable and always beautiful, whether you're looking for morels or making your way down to the trout stream in "rubber pants" with a fly rod in your hand.

Rialto Theater

Reviewed By Rachel M

Don't let the single screen turn you off. The people that work the front are so nice, the theater is comfortably outfitted and the popcorn is quite yummy! They almost always have something playing that I want to see! This is a great theater, and it has so much charm!

Hanson Hills Recreation Area

Reviewed By HappyOnTheRoad2010 - Grayling, Michigan

The children in our community grew up with Hanson Hills Recreation Area! There are many activities to do there including snow skiing, tubing, cross country skiing, hiking, fishing and disc golf. There is a great playground for kids as well. You can always catch a baseball game or take part in a league. Local families have great appreciation for our local park and our children learned how to ski here. I love taking our grandchildren to watch them ski down the hills and plan for the day they can do it too. Grayling loves Hanson HIlls! I'm sure you will too.

Grayling Fish Hatchery Museum Project

Reviewed By Chipperhigh2 - Okemos, Michigan

Visited the Grayling Fish Hatchery with my wife. We enjoyed walking around and looking at the fish being raised. There were small trout to large trout by the hundreds. Was informed they are being raised for food not for stocking rivers and streams. The staff was wonderful to talk with and they made the visit better than expected. Great place to take kids and they can buy food to feed the fish.

What a very nice thing, an historical marker at a rest area. A reason to walk over and read it. This takes your mind off travel and helps relax you. I found this marker very interesting.

Wakeley Lake

Reviewed By CanadaMoi - Canada

This was a very nice hike, very scenic. It was really hot out so we took a deep in the clear water. The hike was not strenuous and went on for quite a way along the lake and into the forest. We didn't visit the campsites but would like to check them out. The lake looks good for fishing.

This was something interesting to see.

This is a working depression era farm. The grounds are beautiful and you can take a walking tour or ride in a little trolley pulled behind a tractor and the farm owners will give you the history of the farm.

There are many buildings to see including a basket shop, a summer kitchen, a church, a grist mill, and a barn with some HUGE steam tractors.

There is also a barn with animals that you can feed - pigs, llamas, sheep, chickens, etc. Bring your quarters to buy feed out of the little machine.

There were also two ponies out in the field that seemed friendly.

The day that we were there, they were doing a garden tractor pull, so we watched that for a while.

The only thing we would have changed was that there were not any attendants working in the shops. The farmer / tour guide said that there would be demonstrations going on in some of the buildings, be we didn't see anyone. He said they were having a tough time getting people to volunteer at the farm.

My two year old loved the place and we are glad we went.
