GO -- Get Outdoors Calendar of Events

Ortonville Recreation Area is located in north Oakland and southern Lapeer counties. This approximately 5,400 acre recreation area contains high wooded hills and a wide range of recreational activities. The development began in 1945, but by the end of 1948, more than 3,700 acres had been secured for the purpose of public recreational use. Additional land acquisitions have increased the area to its present size. The original park, Bloomer #3 State Park, was donated by Howard Bloomer in December of 1922.

A 25-site equestrian campground is located at the trailhead off Fox Lake Road. It is a rustic campground with vault toilets and a hand pump for water. The campground is on a first come first serve basis for campers. The campground offers no reservations, for availablity contact the park at (810)797-4439. The equestrian trails offer 6.5 miles of designated trails wandering through Hadley Hills. The day use area at Big Fish Lake offers 300 parking spaces, restroom facilities, a picnic area, two picnic shelters, a playground, horseshoe pits, and a designated swim area.

The Pines Cabin is located in the Bloomer #3 area. The cabin is nestled at the top of a hill in a wooden area near the hiking trails. The rustic cabin offers propane heat, vault toilet, and a grill.
