Michigan’s 103rd State Park will Feature Watkins Lake
Michigan is getting a new state park, and it's the first to be managed jointly with a county recreation agency. It becomes Michigan's 103rd state park.
Public meetings will be scheduled to discuss a management plan that will guide development of the Watkins Lake park. Officials say recreational opportunities will include hiking, bird watching,
upland hunting and mountain biking.
According to WILX-TV 10, the park will feature open meadows, mixed hardwoods and Watkins Lake, which is popular with waterfowl during fall and spring migration.
