Island Lake State Recreation Area is a 4,000-acre park in Livingston County that offers an “up north” experience without leaving southeast Michigan. The Huron River, which is a significant natural and cultural resources corridor, runs through the park. More details about the park can be found in the official park website

New Hickory Ridge Hiking Trail

Kids Playground at Kent Lake
