Interlochen State Park is located on two fishing and swimming lakes: Green Lake and Duck Lake. The park was established as Michigan's first state park by the Michigan Legislature in 1917, as a 200-acre public park created to preserve one of the last virgin pine stands for the people of Michigan.

The Interlochen-Pines Nature Trail is a one mile self-guided foot trail available for hikers and cross country skiers (it is not groomed). This path is adjacent to the rustic campground and the south loop of the modern campground is highlighted with 16 interpretive stops that correspond with a brochure available at the park headquarters.
