Winnewana / Waterloo State Recreation Area

Chelsea, Michigan

Waterloo State Recreation Area is a former National Park Service property and is the 3rd largest park in Michigan comprising over 20,000 acres characterized by moraines, kettle lakes, swamps and bogs left by retreating glaciers after the last ice age.

This venue is named after the majestic body of water known as the Winnewana Impoundment that much of the rolling, glacier-made terrain overlooks.  It includes forests of Oak and Hickory as well as Winnewana Escarpment, a steep ridge line with drops of several hundred feet down to Winnewana Impoundment. 

A kame formation on the north portion of the venue is marked by a remarkable stand of old growth hardwoods.  Fishing, mountain biking, hiking, bird and sandhill crane watching, and cross country skiing are popular activities for this peaceful natural area.
