Bring your fishing rod, tackle box, and cast your line in the crisp, morning waters of the Huron River. A serene, natural setting and ample wildlife complete your experience. Common catches include smallmouth and largemouth bass. This area is well known for fly-fishing, and there are good spots for shoreline fishing, as well. A Michigan Fishing license is required.
Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.
Geocaches are located throughout the Huron-Clinton Metroparks. If you wish to place a cache within a Metropark, see the rules, regulations, and site permit application.
Metal detecting is permitted in many, but not all, areas of the Metroparks. A permit is required (no cost) which can be picked up at the park office. Please check with individual parks to see where detecting is prohibited.
Relax under the shade of trees or under the north picnic shelter. A children’s playground with swings, slides, and public restrooms are conveniently located onsite.
