• Harvests & Haunts

    As temperatures begin to cool down and summer camping transitions into fall camping, more than 30 Michigan state parks and recreation areas are preparing their fall harvest festivals.

    Hay rides, pumpkin carving trick-or-treating, costume contests, haunted trails, cider & donuts, haunted trails, nature programs and horse-drawn carriage rides are just a few of the many family-friendly activities taking place throughout the state during the months of September and October. Each park puts its own personal spin on the celebrations, so no two events are exactly the same.
