Hartwick Pines Visitor Center & Logging Museum

The Hartwick Pines Visitor Center, at Hartwick Pines State Park, draws thousands of visitors, campers and school children each year to see one of Michigan’s last stands of majestic old-growth pine forest.

For many visitors, Hartwick Pines is a mystical place, offering a serene escape from the modern world, and the year-round, fully accessible visitor center is a gateway to the towering pine forest and the Hartwick Pines Logging Museum that helps us remember when “White Pine Was King.”

I love Hartwick Pines. Wish I lived in Grayling so I could hang out there whenever I wanted. Maybe one day.

Are there xc trails here ?

Your weekly salmon update! All the eggs have hatched and are now in the sack fry stage! These wee little ones are practicing swimming but mostly just hanging around. You'll notice some of the egg shells on the bottom of the tank. #SalmonWatch2k19 #HartwickPines #MiStateParks ...
