Algonac State Park (Phase 2)

The DNR is in the process of developing a new phase 2 general management plan for Algonac State Park. Algonac State Park is best known for its views of freighters traveling along the St. Clair River. The 1,550-acre park boasts a half-mile of riverfront, shooting range, campgrounds, trails and a 1,200-plus-acre dedicated natural area. The park features rare habitats, including lake plain prairies and oak savannas that are home to 22 threatened, endangered or special-concern species of plants, birds and butterflies.

Management planning

General management plans are used to define a long-range planning and management strategy that protects a state park's resources while addressing recreation and education needs and opportunities. Public and stakeholder input is a critical component of the planning process. The updated phase 2 general management plan will replace the existing phase 2 plan by re-establishing long-range action goals for the park and each of the management zones defined in the phase 1 plan.
