Hartwick Pines State Park

Hartwick PinesHartwick Pines is rich in scenic beauty and different habitats. The principal features of this park are the 49-acre forest of Old Growth Pines and logging museum. There is ample subject matter for the sports person, photographer, or naturalist throughout the year.

With an area of 9,672 acres, Hartwick Pines is one of the largest state parks in the Lower Peninsula. The park’s rolling hills, which are built of ancient glacial deposit, overlook the valley of the East Branch of the AuSable River, four small lakes and unique timber lands. The principal feature of this park is the 49-acre forest of Old Growth Pines which gives the park its name. This forest is a reminder of Michigan’s past importance in the pine lumber industry as well as a source of inspiration for the future of our forests. The park is rich in scenic beauty and because of the different habitats it encompasses, there is ample subject matter for the sports person, photographer, or naturalist throughout the year. The park is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. year round.

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.”

Don't forget! The Mackinac Bridge will be closed on Labor Day from 6:30am-Noon. Waiting to head north? Why not stop by Hartwick Pines and pass the time in the old growth forest and Logging Museum? The Visitor Center and Logging Museum will be open from 9-5. #HartwickPines #MackinacBridge #LaborDay 🌲⌚If your Labor Day travel plans include crossing the Mackinac Bridge Monday, Sept. 3, please remember that the Mackinac Bridge Authority will close the bridge to vehicle traffic from 6:30 a.m. to noon.

The brief closure is for the safety and security of 2018 Annual Bridge Walk participants. The walk will begin at 7 a.m. in both St. Ignace and Mackinaw City, but no busing will be available to transport walkers across the bridge.

Want to make the best of your extra time? Take time to explore one of many outdoor destinations in the Upper Peninsula, including Fayette Historic State Park or Palms Book State Park (home of Kitch-iti-kipi). Or, spend some extra exploring the Tip of the Mitt, including the North County Trail or Ocqueoc Falls.

Smokey Bear has encouraged Americans to prevent wild fires for nearly three-quarters of a century! Smokey -- whose legend began on Aug. 9, 1944 -- was using his familiar catch phrase "Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires" by 1947. He's gone through quite a few different "looks" over the decades but the message has always been the same: Humans are the biggest cause of fires, and humans can prevent them. #OnlyYou ...
