Muskallonge Lake State Park is a puptacular recreation destination sandwiched between Lake Superior and Muskallonge Lake. This beautiful state park is the former home of the Coast Guard's Saving Station and was once the site of a booming lumber industry. Today, it is a forested haven with gorgeous lakeside views. What a pawfect place to spend some time with your beloved pup!
Access to two lakes makes this park a premier fishing
locale. Bring your fishing pole along and cast a line in either Lake Superior
or the much smaller Muskallonge Lake. With your lucky dog by your side, you’ll
pull in some smallmouth bass, northern pike, perch, or maybe even some salmon. Please note that dog's are not allowed on the designated swimming beaches, so you'll have to find a spot off the beaten path to fish. When you're finished, reward your patient pal with a hike on the North County Trail. They’ll
appreciate the chance to get some exercise in such a furrific setting.
There is no shortage of campsites in Muskallonge Lake
State Park, so bring your sleeping bags and plan on spending the weekend. RV and tent sites are available. If
your pup prefers sleeping in their own bed at home, then check out the day use area that's nestled on a small bay of Muskallonge Lake. Pack a sandwich for you and some
biscuits for your furry friend and enjoy a puptastic picnic.
To enter the grounds, visitors must furnish a Recreation
Passport. Michigan residents can purchase one for $11.00 at the time
of their annual license renewal. If you are from out of state, a day pass will
cost you $9.00, a small price to pay for a day of fun in the sun with your dog.
Just remember to bring some clean up bags from home and always carry plenty of
Make no mistake; your pup will go mutts over Muskallonge
Lake State Park!
