Adventure Begins Beyond The Horizon

When it’s time to get away, right away, the perfect destination is just around the corner. At your Genesee County Parks. Where 11,000 acres of woods, water, trails, beaches – and so much more – is waiting for you to discover.

Learning Is Our Second Nature

Some places are meant for enjoying nature. Others for learning about it. For-Mar Nature Preserve & Arboretum is both. This 383-acre gem offers natural splendor, abundant animal life and education opportunities for all.

Make Your Mark On The World

Sometimes you need to get down and dirty. That’s when you make your way to Michigan’s best ORV park, the Mounds. We’ve got all kinds of terrain for all-terrain vehicle. And more mud than you’ll know what to do with.

Make Unforgettable Memories

With over 27 parks and multiple fishing sites, we guarantee you’ll have an unforgettable time and many stories to share.
