Bald Mountain Recreation Area

1330 East Greenshield Road

Bald Mountain Recreation Area has some of the steepest hills and most rugged terrain in southeastern Michigan. Camping is limited to rustic cabins, but the extensive trails, inland lakes, trout streams and wild game provide recreation opportunities all year long.

The fishing off the little pier is fantastic for young kids. There are countless little sunfish eager to eat. If one was to go early enough in the day, the deck would be all shade. After one, it got very toasty out there in the hot summer sun. There were several larger fish jumping to get flies. I imagine for a more accomplished fisherman, this would be a great lake for a small boat. There is a small ramp by the fishing pier. I wish the pit toilet was more modern. That is my only complaint.

It's a nice park, I was actually very surprised when I first drove in how far you drive before you find anything. It's a lot larger than you would think based off of it's location right off of 24. I took my bike and they have a couple fun trails to go through with some good climbs. A pretty enjoyable ride and the trails were completely empty while I was there. I didn't explore much else yet as I'm new to area but I will definitely be back soon

This is a huge park for hiking! There's also a calm lake to kayak on. It's all no wake. There were many people fishing from the floating pier and along the shore. Large picnic areas with a playground, volleyball net and plenty of parking. There is also a nice looking beach with ample parking and picnic areas. Be extra careful of poison ivy along pathways and parking lots. It seems this park is a tucked away gem, with lots to offer.

I love going to this lake with my family. If you live in the area its definitely worth a visit or two. Its nestled in mini forest park and is rarely crowded. You can kayak or canoe and if you don't have your own you can rent for a reasonable rate. Come enjoy the beauty and nature of one of Michigan's hidden treasures.

Love to spend summers here at the beach. The picnic areas are quiet. If you travel to the other side of the park, the shooting range is great and the staff are very polite and helpful. I'm fairly new to gun ownership and I always feel welcome and respected here.
