Come join the fun and bring the whole family for the parks annual Ice Fishing Derby, sponsored by the Izaak Walton League of America! To celebrate Free Fishing Weekend (no fishing license required). At this free event there will be prizes awarded, and every kid will walk away with a gift! Never been ice fishing before? Don't let that stop you! We will offer guidance for those who want to learn. If you do not have your own fishing gear, we do have a limited amount that can be borrowed on a first come, first serve basis. We will even drill holes in the ice for anyone who asks! A warming fire will be roaring at the picnic shelter and warm refreshments will be provided. To find out if the event gets cancelled due to bad weather or road conditions, please call the park office at 248-634-7271 by Thursday Feb. 13. We will also post any cancellation notices on the Seven Lakes State Park Facebook page.
