Negwegon State Park

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 9.9 miles


This tiny remote park is one of the best kept secrets in northern Michigan. Hike along the lakeshore and camp within a short walk to the beach in one of only four campsites. Watch the sunrise over Lake Huron. Be sure to make reservations to secure your spot in this little piece of paradise.

Looking for a remote backcountry hike that can be done over a weekend? Negwegon State Park is the place for you. As remote park in northern lower Michigan it has all the best parts of hiking in the U.P. without the long drive. Enjoy camping next to Lake Huron in one of only four campsites available in this short weekend hike.  To even get to the trailhead takes some work. The park enterance is 2 miles down a two track dirt road and feels as though you are driving into a different world. In the times my wife and I have been up to hike, we have rarely even seen another person. In my opinion, this is backcountry camping at its finest.

All forms of wildlife can be seen from this remote lakeshore park. We have consistently seen bald eagles, white-tailed deer, porcupines, sea gulls, and a variety of other birds and creatures. Fall asleep to the waves crashing against the rocks and the gulls cawing overhead. Wake up to a beautiful sunrise climbing over the lakeshore horizon. This little park to the north is one of northern Michigan’s best kept secrets.
