Description

If your pup is looking for fun and adventure, then the Fort Custer Recreation Area is the place to be. This 3,033-acre park is home to a handful of lakes and the Kalamazoo River. Here your dog will be treated to wooded areas and miles of open prairies and rolling hills. Sounds furrific!

With 25 miles of trails, Fort Custer Recreation Area is a hiker’s haven. Mountain bikes and equestrians are limited to where they can ride. Furtunately, hikers are allowed on all park trails. One of the most pupular hikes is the Blue Trail. It's four miles long and goes around Jackson Hole Lake, and Whitford and Lawler Lake. To explore the area around Eagle Lake, hop on the seven mile Green Trail. During the winter, portions of the Red, Green, and Yellow Trails are open for dog sledding, so harness your pup up and go for a ride!

Furry family members are not allowed in the cabins at the Fort Custer Recreation Area, so you will need to get a tent or RV site if you'd like to have an overnight adventure. Campsites have electrical service, a nearby playground, access to the blue trail, and bathrooms from mid-April through mid-October. If you are just visiting for the day, grab one of the picnic areas and enjoy an outdoor meal with your pooch. Grills are available, so bring some burgers and have a pawrty! If you are bringing along the entire pack, consider reserving one of the group shelters at Eagle or Whitford and Lawler Lakes. No matter how long you stay, be sure to have clean-up bags and water on hand.

Please note all park visitors must have a Michigan Recreation Passport. This can be purchased for $11.00 at the time of vehicle permit renewals for Michigan residents, or at the park entrance. This puptacular pass gives you and your canine adventure buddy access to all Michigan state parks for an entire year. Recreation Passports are also available to non-residents.

Fort Custer Recreation Area will make your pup one happy hound!
