Michigan’s Port Crescent State Park In Late Fall

Michigan’s Port Crescent State Park is one of the wildest and largest parks on Saginaw Bay. From its beaches you don’t see a single cottage or sign of civilization. These shots were taken in 2003. We fired up an old computer and found many cool shots we will post in the times ahead. Enjoy.

Many folks are amazed to learn that this vast park was once a thriving lumber town. Much of the  campgrounds was build on the site of the village of Port Crescent.

The Port Crescent park sits on the site of a former lumbering town. However just about all the traces of the former town are gone except for the base of a crumbling chimney near the campground and and old iron bridge at the trailhead near the Pinnebog river.
