Loon Lake Recreation Site

    Park Features: Picnicking

    Loon Lake Day use is a popular picnicking area and swimming beach on a peaceful lake.  The 90-acre lake is mostly surrounded by National Forest System lands. The surrounding landscape is a reminder of the glacial heritage of Michigan. The landscape was deposited and sculpted during the last glacial retreat. 

    There is a short nature walk from the parking area that leads to Island Lake Campground. The terrain along the trail is steep.
