Located in elk country, Clear Lake State Park is a quiet, secluded retreat offering a sandy beach and a shallow swimming area that is ideal for children. The park encompasses 2/3 of the Clear Lake's shoreline. The fall season with the changing colors is an especially beautiful time to view the area.

Clear Lake State Park is located within the Mackinaw State Forest. This State Forest is composed of the northern eight counties of the Lower Peninsula. The Atlanta area of this forest contains over 258,000 acres of state-owned public land. Most of the virgin timber was removed from the forest by the 1920s and has been replaced by second-growth forests managed by the DNR. Deer, elk, turkey and small game are plentiful in the Mackinac State Forest. Hunting is allowed in the State Forest during the approved seasons.Elk Sightings- Elk can be seen and heard throughout the area in the early morning and evening, especially during the spring and fall. Native elk disappeared from Michigan nearly 100 years ago, they were reintroduced in 1918 and have multiplied into a large herd.

Clear Lake is renting boats now! Canoes, kayaks and rowboats. Call 989-785-4388.

Clear Lake State Park has a trail spur that offers Off Road Vehicle (ORV) riders a direct connection to the Atlanta ORV route and the Michigan Cross Country Cycle Trail.

The Clear Lake mini cabin and a limited number of campsites will be open year round for semi-modern (electric only) camping.
