Hoeft State Park is a heavily wooded 300-acre park with a mile of sandy, Lake Huron shoreline. The moderating effect of Lake Huron causes temperatures to be less extreme during both summer and winter and also causes up to two weeks delay in season changes compared to a few miles inland. This was one of the first 14 Michigan State Parks. The original property was donated by lumber baron, Paul H. Hoeft on January 2, 1922. A picnic shelter still in use was built in the day use area by the Civilian Conservation Corps in late 1930s. The campground consists of 143 campsites and a mini cabin.
