Winter Park Closures

Now that snow has fallen and things have begun to freeze, our regular winter park closures have gone into place.

  • Stepping Stone Falls is now closed for the winter.
  • The back gate of Buell Lake County Park is closed for the winter.
  • The back gate of Flushing County Park is closed for the winter.
  • The gate to the North loop of Richfield County Park is closed for the winter.

Winter Activities in the Parks

Due to extremely muddy road conditions, Zemmer park has been closed and will remain closed until the road becomes firm and passable.

Warmer weather has suspended all winter activities until further notice.

For complete information on these and additional activities as well as park maps, please visit the page for the park you are interested in our park directory.

Trail Clearing Taking Place Near Parks Administration Office

If you’ve driven past our office this week, you might have noticed machinery and equipment along the edge of the woods and Ranger side parking lot.  We are beginning clearing for a new segment of trail being funded by a combination of Michigan DNR and Transportation Alternative Plan grants that will connect the existing Bluegill Boat Launch section of the regional Flint River Trail and statewide Iron Belle Trail through to Vassar Road and eventually Richfield County Park.  Please use caution if you’re in this area and obey “Area Closed” signs when you see them.
