Come stay with us during this weekend of fall fun. Bring your Halloween costumes, decorations and candy for trick-or-treating. We kick-off the event on Friday with the Triple Threat Band. They will play from 7-10 p.m. at the park host site (refreshments provided). On Saturday, there will be a pancake breakfast, pumpkin carving, and costume contests during the day; followed by trick-or-treating, a Halloween dance, and site decorating contest in the evening. All other activities are free with the exception of a nominal fee for the pancake breakfast. The money raised will be used for restoration projects at the Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum in Northport, MI. Make your reservations early! For more information, please call the park.
