Michilimackinac State Park

Michigan’s second state park. 

This is Mackinac.

Michilimackinac State Park was established in 1909. Situated at the tip off Michigan’s lower peninsula, the park is bounded on the north by the beautiful waters of the Straits of Mackinac. It is the site of Colonial Michilimackinac, one of the most important fur trading posts of the 18th century, and Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse, known as the “Castle on the Straits” upon its completion.

For more than 100 years local residents and tourists alike have enjoyed the scenic beauty and remarkable history of Michilimackinac State Park.


Beautiful Views
