Negwegon State Park is a rustic, undeveloped area open for hunting and hiking. The terrain is a mixture of low land areas, with small ridges, to mature pine forest, with some hardwoods and aspen forest, with some pockets of open meadows mixed in. Please use caution when visiting Negwegon as the roads into the park are often so sandy that a four-wheel drive vehicle is needed.
Negwegon State Park is located at the south end of Thunder Bay, between Harrisville and Alpena. The park includes 2,400 acres of land and 8 miles of Lake Huron shoreline. The shoreline consists of cobblestone and small sandy coves. It is one of the best hiking and paddling sites in the Lower Peninsula. Bird Island and Scarecrow Island are located off shore from South Point. These islands are part of the Michigan Island National Wildlife Refuge. During the nesting season these islands are teeming with marine birds. Negwegon also had a spiritual significance to early Native Americans.
