About Hartwick Pines State Park:
Hartwick Pines is the largest state park in the lower peninsula with almost 10,000 acres of pine, hardwood, mixed forests, wetland and plenty of history. Donated by Karen Hartwick in memory of her husband Edward in 1933, the park was donated to protect the remaining over 40 acres of old growth white pines, saved from logging. Today, the park in home to a visitor center, logging museum as well as the original Memorial building built in the 30’s as a memorial to Edward by the Civilian Conservation Corp.
The park is home to a variety of wildlife ranging from bobcats, coyotes and bears to birds, beavers and ermine. A renovated camping area allows for over 100 campers throughout the summer, fall months. While the campground may not be open during the winter months, the park and its visitor center remain open year round and provide visitors with plenty to see and do!
