One of Michigan’s Best Secret Getaways: Sleepy Hollow Park

Okay…so I’m at work one day last week and the subject of Sleepy Hollow State Park came up. My co-worker said, “yeah, people like those haunted things.”

I said, “no, no no, you’re wrong…Sleepy Hollow Park here in Michigan does NOT have the Headless Horseman. It’s a beautiful park where you can hike, swim, fish, camp, ski, etc.”

My co-worker: “oh.”

But there’s so much more you can do there:
BOAT
HORSEBACK RIDE
HUNT
LOTS OF WILDLIFE
MOUNTAIN BIKE
PICNIC
SNOWMOBILE
USE METAL DETECTORS
Lots of stuff for the whole family.

So I figured it’s time to get reacquainted with Sleepy Hollow Park near Laingsburg, surrounding Lake Ovid. I admit it’s been YEARS since I’ve been there and it’s sadly overlooked by others as well. So I hope the photo gallery above will give you some incentive to visit.

Around since 1974, Sleepy Hollow park is open year-round so you don’t have to wait for any particular season.

I will say this, however…..there are some genuinely creepy parts of the hiking trails that would be PERFECT for some kind of haunted trail around Halloween…gnarled & trees, lots of dark gloomy spots…..has someone ever had something like that at Sleepy Hollow before? I think it’d be GREAT.

To the uninformed, you can find Sleepy Hollow State Park 7835 E. Price Road in Laingsburg, less than a half hour north of Lansing.

Again, check out the photo gallery above!
