- Improvements at Sanilac Petroglyphs Historic State Park connect visitors with Native culture
Located in the northwestern corner of Sanilac County, the 240-acre Sanilac Petroglyphs Historic State Park is one of the few sites of its kind in the Great Lakes region.

The park features an outcropping of Marshall sandstone with more than 100 petroglyphs carved into its surface by Native people.
