We live about 15 minutes from here and regularly take our guests. It is a unique place that blends nature with art. Kids love finding the “secret” things in the landscape. The groomed trails wind through beautiful Michigan hardwoods, making this a lovely hike all...More

This total 1.5 mile loop is much more technical than anticipated. Not suggested for older couples, young children or this with health issues. Not wheelchair friendly. However if you are in good shape it is totally worth it. Cool art and awesome wooded trail.

If you like to see a frame of a boat, a plane and some sails placed between the trees this is the art park to visit. Bring your hiking boots, because this trail is VERY steep in some places.

We really enjoyed our walk through this park. It takes about an hour, and they provide art bingo sheets for the kids. The art was very interesting and the setting very nice. It is a bit hilly so people with mobility issues could find the...More

This is a great place to visit during the summer, although you can use snow shoes to do the hike in the winter. All of the paths are shaded by trees and there are a lot of interesting sculptures to see, as well as to...More

There were a few entertaining pieces along the walk, but the map was not to scale and hard to follow. We meandered through the park to find pieces and then spent time along the very narrow beach.

Not sure, the last time we went we didn't have a dog yet. Best to call the resort directly for information 231 378-2000.
