VILLAGE PARKS, TRAILHEAD AND CAMPGROUND

Open May 15th, 2020

WOLVERINE HAS TWO PARKS, A ROADSIDE PARK WITH PICNIC TABLES AND GRILLS, AND LUMBERMAN'S PARK WITH A TRAILHEAD AND CAMPGROUND FACILITY. BOTH PARKS HAVE A PAVILLION WITH ELECTRICAL HOOKUPS.

The Village has completed its Park Renovation and Trailhead project. And, without the generous financial support of the Wolverine business community, local Townships, a Department of Natural Resources (DNR) grant and, additional DNR funding provided through a grant from the Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund, this project would not have been possible.


The Village Campground, Trailhead and Park, consisting of 33 acres, are located at 5564 Cedar Street in the Village of Wolverine on the banks of the Sturgeon River. Facilities include - public restrooms, a 15-site campground with water and electrical hookups, RV dumpsite, potable water, burn-pits with wood provided, a handicap fishing pier, a nature trail along the Eastside of the Sturgeon River, basketball court, horseshoe pits, and a kayak/canoe/tube launch site. An appropriate sign is planned to the south of Wolverine on I-75 and, signs north and south of Wolverine along US-27 advertising these amenities. Way-finding signs from I-75 to the Village Park have been installed. The Sturgeon River's rapid flow with many turns and obstacles makes it an exciting trip for any water sport enthusiast. Anglers will find the river exciting as well, for the Sturgeon River is recognized by many as Michigan's Blue Ribbon Brown Trout stream. The Sturgeon River is equally recognized for its trophy-size Rainbow Trout. Some of these prime catches are pictured in the attached photos of Rainbow caught in the Sturgeon River near the Village Park facilities. Wolverine is located at Exit 301, I-75 just minutes away from State land, and excellent elk-viewing.
