Muskallonge Lake State Park Events
GO--Get Outdoors Calendar of Events

There are about 70 lakes and five rivers within a 20 mile radius of the park. Historic forts and the Father Marquette National Memorial and Museum are excellent destinations for day-trips. Tahquamenon Falls State Park is a relatively short drive away and offers spectacular scenery that includes Whitefish Point and several waterfalls. In Newberry, park visitors can take a trip to the Logging Museum or get on a riverboat that will take you down to the falls. West of Grand Marais is the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Southwest of the park are the Kingston Plains and the Seney National Wildlife Refuge. Even closer to the park, duck and goose hunting are allowed on both lakes, but not within the confines of the park. And, charter boat fishing is available at Grand Marais.

Muskallonge Lake State Park is located 28 miles northwest of Newberry in Luce County. The 217-acre park is situated between the shores of Lake Superior and Muskallonge Lake and the area is well known for its forests, lakes and streams. Muskallonge Lake State Park was the former site of Deer Park, a lumbering town in the late 1880s, and prior to its lumbering history, an Indian encampment. Muskallonge Lake was a mill pond for millions of white pine logs that were brought to it by railroad lines. By 1900, the virgin stands of pines were depleted, the mill was closed, and the lumbering operation moved away. All that remains as evidence of the lumbering community are piles of sawdust and a few partly submerged pine logs in the lake. The park was also the old site of a Coast Guard Life Saving Station.
