Indian Lake State Park of Michigan Begins Improvement Projects on Sept. 8
Indian Lake State Park in Schoolcraft County will begin paving improvements and site redevelopments to the South Unit campground and boating access site on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
Campers will be allowed to remain in the campground until it closes at 1 p.m. on Sept. 8. The West Unit, a semi-modern campground with electricity and vault toilets, will remain open until Nov. 1.
The boat ramp will remain open through Sunday, Sept. 13. Alternate boating access sites can be located in the northwest and northeast corners of Indian Lake. The Big Spring launch is located on the northwest corner of Indian Lake, and the Big Spring/Arrowhead launch is located on the northeast corner of the lake, near the golf course.
The improvements will benefit park users by providing a new campground office, along with the construction of a new day use entrance road and campground road improvements.
This project is funded through a federal Land and Water Conservation Fund grant, a restricted fund derived from oil and gas royalties that are earmarked for park and recreation improvements.
