Rugg Pond Natural Area

    Fishing Features:

    Located at the convergence of the two branches of the Rapid River, northwest of the Village of Kalkaska, Rugg Pond is a small park providing fishing and hiking access. Rugg Pond Park includes a trail, scenic overlook, fishing access, and a small boat launch. The trail network extends almost around the entire perimeter of the pond, looping east over the dam and south along the far shore. It allows for a short hike with wildflower and wildlife viewing opportunities; however, the trails are not maintained and are used mostly for fishing.
