    My brother has a place here. He took us to Mac Woods one time. Beautiful area!

    Tom, thats fresh water. No salt water around MI. We still call our shoreline "beach" though. It took me a while to be able to call it a beach, coming from the east coast. Beach to me always meant the ocean.
    Hahahahaha
    Thanks OPIE

    That is a really nice beach

    Thanks for sharing Gargoyle. Lovely spot and a chance to hammock in style.
    Proving to the world that I can hang.

    One of my top ten favorite spots. Duck Lake has a small natural channel that drains into Lake Michigan.

    Opie, Lake Mi. was a little refreshing, the Duck Lake water was nice. Two lakes for the price of one.

    It looks promising that the State will add campsites to the area. Presently its just a parking lot, boat launch and some picnic grounds, and a long road that the state paved right thru the middle. Lots of woods. 728 acres.
    Duck Lake is a nice Park. Its one of those that few know about so it doesnt get overrun with "people."

    We make it a point every year to visit the obscure state parks along the western shoreline. There are many... and most of them are very nice.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    Around the same area is Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness area.

    Very nice, and can be remote with a small effort.
